Gesu Parish and School have been guided by the Society of Jesus since the parish community was founded in 1926. The church and school are located directly across the street from John Carroll University, one of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the nation. This proximity enhances the Jesuit identity of both parish and school and enables the community rich opportunities to understand and practice the Spiritual Exercises fostered by the Society of Jesus. Parishioners and students are highly encouraged to collaborate with the Society of Jesus in living out the Jesuit mission in the local and global communities. This involves a variety of service projects locally, an annual parish service day in December, and two mission trips to Honduras each year.
Prayer for Generosity
Lord, teach me to be generous
Teach me to serve you as you deserve,
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to ask for rest,
To labor and not to seek reward,
Save that of knowing that I am doing your will. Amen.
In the midst of projects, assignments, and tests our seventh graders and the Gesu Student Council members have been busy organizing the generous donations of food for our Thanksgiving project. We have boxes of food for people at eighth different locations. We also have turkeys that have been purchased from donations made by our Gesu faculty, both current and retired members. On Monday, a group of students and teachers will personally deliver to two special locations where they will surely experience what is meant by the adage, "It is better to give than receive." Thanks to all who have supported this annual project. It is our privilege to do the work needed to make the holidays happier for many in our Cleveland community.
