Gesu is a Roman Catholic Community guided by the spirit of St. Francis de Sales who calls us to Live Jesus! Inspired by our faith committment, we share our diverse talents and gifts in service to one another. As a Eucharistic family, nourished by the sacraments and the Word of God, we welcome all to our spiritual home.
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

You Are Invited To Gesu's First-Friday Eucharistic Adoration
Join us each First Friday for a period of quiet, personal, spiritaual time before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. We open Adoration following the 7am mass and close at 9pm. If you can sign up for an hour or half-hour, we'd appreciate it since we never want our Lord to be alone. If you can't manage a time slot, stop by anytime.
