A Shared Purpose
St. Gerard Circle was conceived in 1997 as an active Catholic ministry for mothers. We are moms and spiritual mothers, of all ages. We welcome Catholic women from all parishes to join us in fellowship, spirituality, and service. Our goal is to develop friendships within our parish community, to provide a Catholic foundation for our children, to continue spiritual guidance for ourselves and our families, and to encourage community involvement in the spirit of love and charity.
St. Gerard Majella … Our Patron Saint
St. Gerard has come to be known as Patron of mothers and expectant mothers as a result of a miracle that came through his prayers for a woman in labor. During his life, St. Gerard helped many mothers in need. The mothers of Italy took Gerard to their hearts and made him their patron. Since his death in 1755 at the age of 29, there has been a continuous flow of extraordinary favors granted to mothers who prayed to him. Today, there are millions who look to him for help in obtaining the blessings of motherhood and aid as they face the challenges of this calling.
