FORMED

Our parish has a gift for all parishioners! That gift is a subscription to FORMED, a wonderful website that has been called a “Catholic Netflix.” FORMED has inspiring movies and video based studies, audio talks and e-books from the Church's most compelling speakers and authors.

How many of you would like to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ?

How many of you know someone who has fallen away from the Church, perhaps a friend, a family

member, a co-worker, and you want to reach them but you just don’t know how?

This is why our parish has invested in FORMED, so that each of us might grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and in our desire to share our Faith with others, especially those closest to us.

With your free access to FORMED, 24/7 on your smartphone, computer, iPad, or Kindle, you can:

• Prepare for Mass each week by watching an insightful five-minute video on the Sunday Readings

• Enjoy movies as a family that are both nourishing and entertaining

• Enrich your marriage with the award-winning video program Beloved; and help your children grow

in faith and character with engaging children’s materials.

Please follow the instructions below on how to create your FORMED account.

Our 50th Anniversary!

From Fr. Greg: "My appointment as Pastor dovetails very nicely with an approaching milestone for our parish – our 50th Anniversary! On October 1, 1968, Bishop WalterKellenberg  signed the papers incorporating and founding the Parish of St. Gerard Majella. Our history is a rich one, with its up and downs, successes and setbacks. Just like any family, we have much to be grateful for and so much more yet to be discovered as a community of faith. I have asked the Pastoral Council to take charge of the celebrations surrounding our Golden Jubilee.Our vision is to have one event each month from October 2018 – October 2019. These events will be for the entire parish and will vary in their content. Some will be moments of prayer and spiritual renewal; others will be light-hearted and opportunities to share laughs and memories. While the details are still being worked out, I ask everyone to begin praying now that the upcoming celebration will be one of rejuvenation for all of us. If you have ideas of ways to mark this milestone or would like to be part of the planning process, please contact Louise DiCarlo [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.]. She will be coordinating efforts for the Jubilee with thePastoral Council. In time, we will be asking for people to share pictures and memories from their time here at St. Gerard’s. So, as you are cleaning things around your home, be on the lookout for those important items you may want to lend us for the celebration.
