Welcome to Saint Gerald Catholic Church

Annual Bake for Books
The annual St. Gerald Bake for Books bake sale will be the weekend of October 22-23. The proceeds from the bake sale help support the St. Gerald School Library, and we need your help. First, we need your donation of delicious baked items! Items can be brought to the fellowship hall on Saturday October 22 after 9:00am. Second, stop by after mass that weekend to purchase some of the home baked items for yourself and your family – perhaps even something to share with your co-workers on Monday morning! If you have questions, or would like to help in any way, please contact Mary Beth Brennan or Angie Pelan. THANK YOU!

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.
