Welcome to St. Gerard Church . . .
We welcome you and hope that you will find not only a parish, but also a home here. For 100 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.
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo joins those praying for those who perished, their families, and untold numbers of people who are injured, homeless or facing evacuation after the devastation wrought from the recent hurricanes. Recovery efforts are expected to take months, if not years.
Your financial support will help with long-term recovery efforts, including needed pastoral care and support, case management to assist disaster victims navigate the system, and direct assistance to people unable to get insurance coverage or sufficient government support from FEMA.
