Welcome to Saint Gerald Catholic Church

Collect HyVee Receipts for St Gerald School
Please begin in September to save your HyVee receipts, (grocery, gas, liquor, restaurant) from any HyVee store for St. Gerald School. Receipts must be dated Sept 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2016. Thank you.
Mark Your Calendar for Annual Life Chain
Sunday October 2nd is the annual Life Chain. It will be held from 2-3 p.m. Signs will be provided on-site. Since this is an election year, with much at stake, your presence is needed even more than usual. Please mark your calendars now so you can be part of this event to take a stand for life.
RCIA Class
RCIA means The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Our parish RCIA begins Tuesday, September 6. There will be approximately 35 Tuesday sessions extending from the beginning of September until the middle of April. Each session is about 1½ hours long. Most people who become Catholics do so because of the influence, good example, and encouragement of a spouse, fiancée, or friend. If you know of someone who would be interested in our Catholic faith, encourage them to come to RCIA. We urge you to sign up now.

Prayer for Family Formation
Prayer for Family Formation in Every Part of Our Parish
Dear Lord, you have always been faithful to us and have always guided our parish to know, love and serve you. You call us to be Disciples who actively share their faith with others. Strengthen the gifts of the Holy Spirit in each of us as we seek to help our families become the primary place of religious formation. We give you thanks for the fruit that has come from Family Formation. Bless all our efforts this coming year especially as we move the Family Formation model into our school and as we begin YDisciple among our youth. Encourage us as we move in this new direction and keep our hearts tuned to your will. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
