  • THE NATIONAL SHRINE

    OF SAINT GERARD MAIELLA

    ASSOCIATION


    We want to connect each of them to the National Shine of St. Gerard in the United States.

    We offer to all devotees an opportunity to be part of the “family”
    of the National Shrine trough the membership in the St. Gerard Association.

    To be part of it, please -- click here--



  • PLAZA UPDATE


    Last winter we caulked the cracks in the tablature (the wall in the plaza) to prevent water from entering the structure. We now know that this did not work as well as planned and the cracks are back and getting bigger.

    We are looking into solutions to fix this problem without it costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair. If any parishioner has any ideas that maybe we did not look into, please contact the rectory as soon as possible.

St. Gerard

St. Gerard was born in Muro, a small town in the South of Italy on April 6, 1726. He was the only son of Benedetta and Comenico Maiella who already had three daughters. Because of his frail health he was not immediately accepted into the Order but, due to his insistence and persistence he was finally accepted in May of 1749 and became a lay brother of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer. He was a model of obedience and in everything he sought the Will of God.

Pax Christi

Pax Christi USA strives to create a world that reflects the Peace of Christ by exploring, articulating, and witnessing to the call of Christian nonviolence. This work begins in personal life and extends to communities of reflection and action to transform structures of society. Pax Christi USA rejects war, preparations for war, and every form of violence and domination. It advocates primacy of conscience, economic and social justice, and respect for creation.

34 years ago Msgr. Oscar Arnulfo Romero, then archbishop of San Salvador, was shot to death while celebrating Mass in a hospital. His only "crimes” were to denounce the violence in El Salvador and to share the suffering of the needy. For all the members of Pax Christi here, Romero is an example to follow.

 Eucharistic Adoration

Our Chapel got its start in January of 1998 when two young women of the parish petitioned Msgr. Granato to start a Chapel at St. Lucy's. Msgr. told them he would set up a chapel but they would have to come up with two people for every hour of the week. Maria (34) and Lissette(26) just smiled and went to work. It took them three months to put a list together with enough names to satisfy Msgr. Granato.
