Parish Service Day

Gesu Parish is soaked in the charism of St. Ignatius of Loyola. St. Ignatius was very high on serving those in great need. In fact, serving those in need is how Christians live the faith of Jesus and make Jesus' faith their own.

Over 600 parishioners of all ages participated in this day of serving others throughout the city of Cleveland, Ohio. They spread out over 48 diverse sites, giving of themselves in a wide variety of ways.

Each group prayed Ignatius' prayer of generosity.

"Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will."
