Please celebrate the feast of Pentecost with the Gesu Community. On June 8th and 9th, there will be special liturgies and activities to celebrate our Come Home to Gesu weekend. All family, friends, alumni, and guests are welcome for this special event. https://t.co/XLU70I7lc0
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.
Our friends at the Mercury Theatre Company are offering the Gesu community a special family discount to see two of our own Gesu students who are cast members in Mercury Theatre Company's production of CHAPLIN. How exciting to be there for Gesu students Emmett Vogel and Kai Culbertson as they perform in the company's tribute to the world’s greatest filmmaker!
Direct from Broadway, and with special permission from composer and book writer Christopher Curtis, Chaplin plays now through July 21. From the slums of London to the heights of Hollywood, Chaplin is based on the real-life story of Charlie Chaplin, the iconic film actor, writer, producer and director. Dramatizing the making of Chaplin’s legendary films, including The Kid, The Circus, Modern Times and The Great Dictator, Chaplin tells the touching story of the man who makes the world laugh as his legendary screen persona, the Tramp, but struggles to find his own real-life happiness. Thanks to director Pierre Brault for this great opportunity! Good luck to these fine performers.
