Lay staff

In addition to its religious staff, St. Aloysius Retreat House relies on a number of lay helpers to fullfil the daily duties necessary to its functioning as a smoothly operating retreat center.

Mr. Ken Olsen, the head of our maintenance staff, is a native Californian coming from Carmel. In addition to caring for the grounds and the house Ken picks up the retreatants arriving at the airport.

Mr. Tony Didio is the longest standing member of our staff. He has been at St. Aloysius Retreat house since 1999. Tony gives his assistance to the general jobs of the house and rings the bell on retreat.

Mrs. Sylvia Gonzales keeps St. Aloysius clean and tidy. She enjoys caring for the gardens around the house, and attends to the laundry. Her biggest task is overseeing the cleaning of the many rooms and cabins used by the retreatants.
