Saint Gerald Virtual Tour
St. Gerald of Mayo, a Benedictine monk and abbot, was chosen as the titular saint. He died in 732 A.D. He was an Englishman with very little known about his life. As the story goes, he accompanied St. Colman to Ireland after the Celtic way of observing Easter was forbidden in Northumbria, England. This group of of monks ultimately split into an Irish and English monastery. St. Colman stayed with the Irish group and St. Gerald became the abbot of the English group at Mayo. March 13th is his feast day.
Our parish shrine with the statue of St. Gerald was blessed May 24, 1962, by Archbishop Gerald T. Bergan, followed by Mass. The Rev. J. Hanna, S.J., 80, laid the Kasota stone. The only one of its kind in the country, the St Gerald statue is made of white Carara marble and was designed in Italy.
