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.
Seventh grader Carson Yates now has two things in common with Gesu's pastor, Father Kiser, SJ. This past year he has been an altar server at several of Father's liturgies and today they discovered that they both have a love for geographic facts and trivia. Today Carson won the school Geographic Bee which was held on the morning broadcast. When he met with Father to have this picture taken, he discovered that Fr. Kiser had also been the Geography Bee champ at his Michigan elementary school. Perhaps Father will give Carson a few tips when he takes the online test needed to see if he can qualify to move on further in this challenging competition! Congratulations to Carson, his parents and teachers who have helped him excel in this area.
