Aloysius worked for decades in the Los Angeles region, and, according to his former secretary, Fr. Manion, “Our Lord gave him the gift of miracles to lead people to the love of God, and as such lay people and clerics, religious and even bishops, sought his counsel and his prayers.” This fund will help support the tribunal process.Donate to this Fund
