From The Desk Of Fr. Marty Lukas

by Gesu Parish Toledo on 12/20/16

Dear Parishioners,

Have you checked out our "Come Home to Gesu for Christmas" welcoming ads on Facebook?  This is our attempt to vigorously reach out to former parishioners or in-active parishioners who may be looking to re-ignite their faith and reconnect with their Gesu Family.  Any effort that you, our faithful parishioners can do to assist in this campaign is greatly appreciated.  Reach out to a neighbor who hasn't been back to Gesu in some time.  Tell them of the good things happening here.  Invite them to come and see our new altar and sanctuary furnishings.  Invite them to experience the warmth of our community and be that warmth when you see a new face in the congregation.

Our "Come Home to Gesu" campaign will only be as successful as we make it once the folks are back with us.  Hopefully what they might experience during the holiday season will continue on into the New Year.  Thanks for your help on this.

Finally, our Gesu young (and not so young) adult group will get going after the New Year.  Plans are for different types of activities that members can "plug into" as they would wish.  Some activities might be purely social - getting together for breakfast after Mass or a meal together, or going to a Walleye or Mud Hens game.  Some might like to do some service projects together - perhaps working as a group at one of our Sunday meals at Helping Hands of St. Louis.  Others may be looking for a spiritual connection with people their own age.  While others may be looking for some opportunities for some group input from a speaker on a current spiritual or church topic.  These are just some considerations of what the group might be able to provide.  Give it some thought now and when the time comes you can be "primed" to participate.

Have a good week.  And keep preparing inside and out for Christmas!  Fr. Marty

The winners were Jean Buckley, a faithful member and volunteer with our St. Vincent de Paul Society, Joyce Graves, currently a part of the RCIA and will join the parish at Easter, and Margaret McCready, and we can't even begin to list all the wonderful things that Margaret does for Gesu. And the $5000 Grand Prize went to Tom and Nancy Douglas. They also were present and were practically speechless!
