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.
