St. Gerard Parish will have a PARISH MISSION on January 21-23, for 3 days, Sunday-Tuesday. Let us all attend this sure-to-be grace-filled event with FRANK RUNYEON – acclaimed by critics, scholars, and over 1000 Catholic parishes as a great presenter of the gospel message. The Mission will be held in Church at 6:30 pm. For more info on the presenter: www.frankrunyeon.com.
Monday and Tuesday Morning Mass. A special Mission Mass will be offered at 9 am, in Church, to include readings and reflections, in keeping with the themes of the Mission Presentations, Refreshments will follow.
The Sacrament of Confession/Reconciliation. Confession will be available in Church, following the Monday night presentation on the Sermon on the Mount.
Childcare. It is said that people, ages 7 on up, can be enriched by these presentations. Childcare for the younger children will be available in the Parish Office Building. The children must be registered through Bertha Saucedo by 4 pm each day. If no one has called to register a child, the certified childcare adults, will be asked to not come for that day.
