The Gesu PTO invites you to attend a presentation by Internet safety expert Jesse Weinberger. This will take place at 7 PM on Monday, December 9th in McAuley Hall. This is a MUST DO for all parents whose children have daily access to the Internet with their phones and devices. https://t.co/VecZvKyZrs
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.
The first meeting of the Gesu Chess Club got off without a glitch! Nearly 30 students in Grades 2-4 played several games against opponents assigned by Ms. Jones. With the help of eighth graders Dominic Lucci and Andrew Shipley, everyone played successfully and had a lot of fun. Thanks to Miss Caroline Corsones, our seventh grade teacher who also joined us and generously took on challengers. It sounds like Mr. Nate Luengo, our eighth grade teacher may also be joining us for future meetings!
The younger students will continue playing through mid-February and then students in Grades 5-8 will meet for their turn at the fun. What a great way to spend a quiet, winter afternoon. Chess Club will conclude in the spring with a three week team tournament open to students in all grades. Sign ups will occur in March.
