As we begin our Catholic Schools Week celebrations we invite you to join us at our 10 AM Family Mass this coming Sunday in the Church of the Gesu. Coffee and donuts will follow in the Bulldog Gym. There will be an Open House and Art Auction in the school from 11 AM - 1 PM. https://t.co/Cgq5spIFPp
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.
Thanks to our Student Council members who worked very hard at Gesu's Lenten Soup Lunch today. They served, cleaned up, counted money, and increased our collection for the Special Wish Foundation by singing impromptu numbers for donations which brought in over $150.00. They were absolutely fabulous! We also thank all of the students who participated in the lunch today, our cafeteria monitors, and Mrs. Denise Gondek and the AVI team. Together we raised over $2000 in one day and we also learned a bit about Lenten sacrifices!
