Today is St. Patrick’s Day.
One of the significant times the bishop gathers with his priests, deacons, and diocese is at the Chrism Mass. This yearly gathering of the church provides an opportunity for the diocesan community to focus on the Word and the Eucharist, while at the same blessing the oils, which are used in parish ministries throughout the year. The Chrism mass will be held at St. Joseph Cathedral at 10:30 am on Wednesday March 28, 2018. The diocese invites all parishioners to the Chrism Mass.
Lord, Holy Father, show us what kind of man it is who is hanging for our sakes on the cross, whose suffering causes the rocks themselves to crack and crumble with compassion, whose death brings the dead back to life. Let my heart crack and crumble at the sight of him. Let my soul break apart with compassion for his suffering. Let it be shattered with grief at my sins for which he dies. And finally let is be softened with devoted love for him.
Merry Christmas from St. Gerard Majella Church!
It snowed today! The snow is as pure as Jesus’ love for us.
We celebrated the 60th anniversary of the St. Gerard Majella Church, as well as the Feast Day of St. Gerard Majella. We had a lovely reception after mass on Sunday, October 15. Raffle ticket winners were announced. Pictures from the event are included below.
We were featured on WBRZ!
