New Vision and Mission for St. Gerald Parish

Vision:
Encountering Jesus · Making Disciples · Transforming Lives

Mission:
Led by the Holy Spirit, we are a Catholic community of faith whose primary purpose is to know Jesus, to love Him, and to serve Him in serving others. Sent to make disciples, we invite and welcome everyone to come and share our Master's joy.

We are witnessing an exciting moment in the history of our parish! On Monday, May 14, over one hundred parish staff and ministry leaders gathered the Fellowship Hall for the unveiling of our new vision and mission. During this time, Fr. Mark introduced the leadership team who helped him craft the new vision and mission statements.

The evening included prayer, praise and worship and small group discussions. Some attendees gave a short testimony on the spiritual renewal they have witnessed within our parish in recent times. Many found comfort in learning that our new vision and mission align with the Archbishop’s vision and mission for the Archdiocese of Omaha.

The parish staff and ministry leaders are excited and anxious to get started on this great undertaking Fr. Mark has developed alongside his leadership team. Stay tuned as we continue to communicate our progress towards implementing this new vision and mission into the framework of our parish and all its ministries.

If you missed the leadership summit, please view the video taken that evening:

Prayer for Family Formation

Prayer for Family Formation in Every Part of Our Parish
Dear Lord, you have always been faithful to us and have always guided our parish to know, love and serve you. You call us to be Disciples who actively share their faith with others. Strengthen the gifts of the Holy Spirit in each of us as we seek to help our families become the primary place of religious formation. We give you thanks for the fruit that has come from Family Formation. Bless all our efforts this coming year especially as we move the Family Formation model into our school and as we begin YDisciple among our youth. Encourage us as we move in this new direction and keep our hearts tuned to your will. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
