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.
This Christmas we have a unique situation and challenge - Christmas occurs on a Sunday. While this is nice and certainly makes my schedule a little less hectic, it does pose one concern. Each year you are so generous with your Christmas offering, but you'll notice in your box of envelopes there is also an envelope designated for December 25 - and it is a Sunday envelope. These weekend collections are budged for each year. Could you see your self dropping two envelopes in the collection on Christmas? I'd ask you to please keep this in mind as you prepare your offering next week.
Finally, as the Big Day approaches, please try not to STRESS OUT! What gets done gets done, what doesn't get done, doesn't get done. The days ahead are meant to celebrate the wonderful gift of the birth of Jesus, our savior. The days give us time to spend with family and good friends. That's what's important. If every piece of tinsel isn't hung on the tree exactly correctly - that's OK! It's still a time of joy and love. Make it that...regardless of how the house looks! God bless! And have a great week!

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.
