Welcome to St Gerard’s Catholic Church

 

Prayer to St Gerard Majella for the Family

Great protector of the family, St Gerard, we ask your prayers for all parents, that they may receive the grace to live in the love of God and bring up their children to know and love him with all their hearts. We ask you to pray also that those who take the lives of unborn innocents and attack the dignity of motherhood may come to see the error of their ways, and that all may value the true holiness of Christian family life. God, our loving Father, your love gives life to the world. Bless and make holy all human love, especially the life-giving love of husband and wife. May your love fill the hearts and homes of all families, so that the world may enjoy the peace and happiness promised by your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. 

God bless and St Gerard protect you!
