Father Maloney, and St. Aloysius Parish School on North Hanover Street
POTTSTOWN PA – The Rev. Joseph Maloney, pastor of St. Aloysius church and school on North Hanover Street, has been named by the National Catholic Educational Association as one of its national 2017 Learn, Lead, Proclaim award winners, the parish announced Tuesday morning (Jan. 3, 2017) to its e-mail subscribers.
The second annual awards “recognize the outstanding efforts, contributions and achievements on behalf of Catholic school education,” according to the association website. Winners were notified this week, it said, and the awards themselves are scheduled to be presented during a special dinner April 18 at the association’s expo and conference in St. Louis MO.
Maloney has been active during 2016 in garnering parish, financial, and community support to relocate the existing St. Aloysius School to the North Keim Street, Lower Pottsgrove, building that formerly housed St. Pius X High School. The building has been vacant for several years. It is expected to be renovated in coming months using hundreds of thousands of dollars in pledges donated to the parish. It will then lease the building for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

The parish has already begun efforts to attract more students, one of its stated goals in making the move. A postcard marketing campaign mailed to greater Pottstown area homes coincidentally began this week. It invites recipients to attend a Jan. 29 (Saturday) open house from 1-3 p.m. at the current school location, 220 N. Hanover St.
