Would you like your home blessed?

Jesus said, “As you enter a house, wish it peace” Matthew 10:12

St. Gerard Majella clergy will come and bless your home by appointment. Your rosaries, crucifixes and images can also be blessed. Please call the parish office and provide your preferred days and times for the blessing. One of our deacons or priests will call you back and confirm an appointment

A blessing is an expression of the Church to prepare us to receive grace and dispose us to cooperate with it. The Catechism explains, “Every blessing praises God and prays for his gifts. In Christ, Christians are blessed by God the Father ‘with every spiritual blessing’” CCC 1671
