Are you new to St. Gerard Parish?

     We welcome you and hope that you will find not only a parish, but also a home here. For over 80 years, St. Gerard Parish has proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Catholic community of Lima and surrounding areas. We are a vibrant faith community served by the Redemptorist priests of the Baltimore Province.  We look forward to your presence as we gather to pray and worship as a community.

Are you a long time parishioner?

    You can browse through the St. Gerard Parish website and catch up on the latest news about the parish in general or a special ministry you are involved with. Or maybe after reading about a particular organization, you will hear your own call to witness and serve Christ with them. Our ministries and organizations have places for many different talents and gifts  ~ yours are needed! Whatever time you can devote to our parish, you do in His name, and we are grateful for your participation.

Sunday, July 27, 2014

4:00—6:00 p.m. in the

Parish Hall

Following Pope Francis’ call to get out into the streets, the Parish will host our second Serve and Share Meal on Sunday, July 27th in the Parish Hall.  Please save the date!  Our first Serve and Share meal was well-received by the community and was a great parish community building event.  The parish responded with droves of volunteers.  You are needed again.  Sign-up sheets are in the church entrances.  Please sign-up.  A committee member will contact  you with specifics when the date draws nearer.  This is a great opportunity to SERVE the community and SHARE in their lives and struggles.
