St. Gerald Advent Retreat - Saturday, December 1
The Advent and Christmas seasons are upon us. Similar to Lent, the Advent season is a time of interior preparation in joyful anticipation of God's gift of new Life. The message of Advent, "Prepare the Way", is an urgent and ageless message and certainly a message for our times. It is a call to conversion, to discipleship and to preparedness for the coming of Christ who longs to enter more deeply into our hearts. Please join Fr. Mark as we take a closer look at our interior life and how we can experience more fully the birthing of God's incarnate love (Jesus) within our hearts each and every day. You can watch the videos of Father Mark's talks be using the links below:
Please join Fr. Mark, Fr. Michael and the St. Gerald family in a nine day Rosary Novena to our Lady. The Rosary Novena begins, December 10th through Tuesday, December 18th. We want to ask Our Lady specifically for the funds needed to successfully complete our capital campaign.
You may pray the rosary privately or join other parishioners at 7:45am at the Lakeview Chapel or 11:45am at 96th & Q. On Sunday, December 16th we will pray the rosary at 6:00pm, prior to the penance service.
