A Greeting From Our Pastor

Welcome to St. Gerard Catholic Church!     

St. Gerard's has an inspiring history of welcoming people from different backgrounds.  Originally an African-American parish, it opened it's arms to accept new arrivals from Latin America, and then to help new families from Africa.  We speak English, Spanish, Kirundi, Kinyarwanda, and sometimes Swahili together at our Masses. 

Our faith in Christ unites us, as we make our pilgrim way together.  Hopefully you will find the information here on our website helpful.  Father Jose Moran Arce and myself, our staff, and all our parish volunteers, stand ready to help in any way we can. 

We hear Confessions at 3:30pm on Saturdays, in the confessional in the church, or call for an appointment. 

We have entered into an exciting new phase of our history as a parish.  After celebrating our 70th anniversary, we renovated the worship space.   In 2018, we purchased a neighboring house, which we have named after Our Lady of Kibeho, and use now for small group meetings.

We thank God for bringing us together, and for giving us a share in His divine love, through the sacraments of His Church. 

Yours in Christ, Rev. Ken Shuping, pastor
