Saint Gerard’s Blessing

Saint Gerard Majella’s annual Blessing was live streamed on his feast day on Sunday (October 16).

People were able to watch the 30-minute liturgy on Facebook and YouTube. Led by Father Sam Kono CSsR, Redemptorist priests and brothers from the Formation House in Kew, Melbourne provided the music and sang the hymns while there was a special blessing for families and children.

Fr Sam also blessed a collection of prayers and intentions to St Gerard that families had sent in prior to his feast day.

St Gerard is the patron saint of mothers, expectant mothers and the unborn. He was born in Italy in 1726 and became a lay brother of the order of the Congregation of the Redeemer or the Redemptorists, as they are more commonly known.
