St Gerard's Family League...


2011_09_15_16_40_57.pdf001

 

Our patron St. Gerard Majella was born in the south of Italy in 1726. He worked as a tailor before entering the Redemptorist Congregation becoming a brother. He died at the age of twenty-nine.

 

Although his life was short, he managed to achieve great holiness. So numerous were the miracles God worked through him, that even during his lifetime he was called the“ wonder-worker “.

Since his death in 1775, countless favours and miracles have been granted and worked through his intercession.

 

As well as the patron of a good confession, he has become well known as the patron of mothers and has been invoked as a constant source of help and inspiration to parents.

 

The League of St. Gerard is an association of Christians united in prayer for family life and its Christian values.

 

Membership is open to all.

 

The enrolment fee of £2.00 covers prayer leaflets and a medal and a remembrance at a weekly Mass offered for all members and their intentions.
