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.
Congratulations to seventh graders Daniel Baena and Thomas DeCicco for surviving a very volatile stock market to make a 2.3% profit. Over the past ten weeks our junior high students have been playing the Stock Market Game and these boys saw their $100,000 investment increase to $102,348.75 which put them first among the ten teams that played the game. Thanks to Mrs. Matia who brought these students together to buy and sell their stocks during their lunch time each week. Good work to all club members! You learned first hand the realities of short term investing in the market!

Good luck to our Gesu athletes as you begin your CYO basketball season. We hope that you always play with strong sense of integrity and that you always show good sportsmanship both on the court and off.
