INTERESTED IN BECOMING CATHOLIC
The Gesu RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) program welcomes adults who are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and guides them towards the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and/or Eucharist. The RCIA program also offers participants an opportunity to experience the parish community that shapes Catholics. Contact Marcia Leous for more information.
INTERESTED IN BECOMING A PARISHIONER
We are happy to welcome new parishioners to Gesu. You are asked to register at the Parish Office at your earliest convenience. Please call (216) 932-0617 for an appointment. If you are moving, or if your adult children have moved away from your home, we ask that you notify the Parish Office.
Here at Gesu we understand that visiting a new Church can sometimes be intimidating, so we want you to feel as comfortable as possible when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions.

WHERE DO MY CHILDREN GO?
Your children are welcome to join you for Mass, and we have a crying room in the back of the church as well.
For children ages 4-8, we offer a Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 10:00 am Mass on Sunday. CLOW is an opportunity for young children to hear the Word of God at their own level of understanding. This is offered during the Liturgy of the Word. Children who wish to participate are called up to the front of the Church after the Opening Prayer and are led to the Marian Chapel by an adult leader. Children return to their parents after the homily. Please Contact Juli Paskay for more information.
AM I EXPECTED TO PUT MONEY IN THE OFFERING?
As good Catholics, we are blessed and encouraged to share our blessings and give back to God in whatever ways we can.
I HAVE A DISABILITY - IS THERE ANY SPECIAL ASSISTANCE?
Gesu is fully wheelchair accessible, with ramps and wheelchair seating. We also have a loop system for anyone who may be hearing impaired. A wheelchair is available for anyone who may need it in the “Bride’s Room,” located near the Thompson lot entrance of the church. Simply ask an usher for assistance.
