Exposition on All Hallows' Eve

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. On Sunday, October 31st, All Hallows' Eve, we will be gathering at St. Gerald's on 96th and Q @ 2 PM, for a Holy Hour with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament along with the Rosary and the Divine Mercy chaplet. Halloween has unfortunately become a secular holiday; however, it has its foundation in Catholic tradition. "Hallow" means "holy" and "e'en" is a shortened version of "evening". In other words, Halloween is the eve of the day when we, as Catholics, celebrate the lives of the saints and their triumph over sin and death. Please join us as we unite ourselves with Our Lady and the saints in prayer for the protection and healing of our nation and our families. All children who attend are invited to wear saints' costumes. Please invite family and friends for this prayer gathering.

Solemnity of All Saints & All Souls

Normally a separate Holy Day of Obligation, but since All Saints Day falls on Monday this year, it will not be considered a Holy Day of Obligation. We will have our regular Monday mass schedule.
6:45am - Lakeview Chapel
12:15pm - 96th & Q

All Souls Mass will be held on Tuesday, November 2nd at 7pm, 96th & Q St. Special guests will be those whose loved ones had funerals at St. Gerald's this year (10/3/20-10/15/21). All parishioners are invited to attend. (Mask optional) For more information, please call the business office 402-331-1955.

Fr. Mark's School of Prayer

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. In Lk. 11:1 one of Jesus's disciples said, "Lord, teach us how to pray just as John taught his disciples." If you would like to know more about prayer and the interior life and how you can know the Lord more personally, then please join Fr. Mark on Saturday, November 6th at 9am at the Lakeview Chapel. Please bring your journal and pen.

Deacon George Butterfield is joining the parish staff!

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. Deacon George was raised in a Protestant church and served as a pastor from 1972-2002. He and Debra were married and have three children, four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Deacon George became Catholic in 2003 and Debra in 2009. St. Gerald was George's second parish as a Catholic and nurtured him while encouraging him to enter the permanent diaconate program. The warmth and love of this parish from 2007-2017 also helped lead Debra into the Catholic Church. After four years of doing missionary work in Oklahoma (!), the Butterfields are happy to be home.

New Tabernacle Location

We have some exciting news! Thanks to a few of our generous parishioners who were willing to cover the cost of this minor construction, our beautiful tabernacle at 96th and Q has a new resting place just behind our main altar underneath the crucifix.

Healing was at the very core of the life and mission of Jesus. As his disciples, it is our calling to carry on that same mission. If you feel called to the healing ministry and would like to learn more about it, please consider registering for the newly-opened Encounter School of Ministry on the campus located in nearby Springfield at Ablaze Ministries.
