New Vision and Mission for St. Gerald Parish
Encountering Jesus · Making Disciples · Transforming Lives
Led by the Holy Spirit, we are a Catholic community of faith whose primary purpose is to know Jesus, to love Him, and to serve Him in serving others. Sent to make disciples, we invite and welcome everyone to come and share our Master's joy.
We are witnessing an exciting moment in the history of our parish! On Monday, May 14, over one hundred parish staff and ministry leaders gathered the Fellowship Hall for the unveiling of our new vision and mission. During this time, Fr. Mark introduced the leadership team who helped him craft the new vision and mission statements.
The evening included prayer, praise and worship and small group discussions. Some attendees gave a short testimony on the spiritual renewal they have witnessed within our parish in recent times. Many found comfort in learning that our new vision and mission align with the Archbishop’s vision and mission for the Archdiocese of Omaha.
The parish staff and ministry leaders are excited and anxious to get started on this great undertaking Fr. Mark has developed alongside his leadership team. Stay tuned as we continue to communicate our progress towards implementing this new vision and mission into the framework of our parish and all its ministries.
