'MERCIFUL LIKE THE FATHER'

St Gerard's & Sacred Heart:

Walk to Carfin Grotto Holy Door

On Saturday 1st October 2016, our parishes will walk from Bellshill to Carfin Grotto to pass through the Holy Door and celebrate Holy Mass. Everyone is encouraged to take part in this event. Those who cannot walk can go directly to Carfin where we will gather for a short service. More info to follow...

Parish Prayer for the Jubilee of Mercy

Loving God, help us live out our daily lives the mercy which you constantly extend to all of us. As you cast open the doors of your heart to us may we respond with urgency to proclaim your mercy to others. May we always be credible witnesses to mercy, professing it and living it as the core of the revelation of Jesus Christ. May we never tire of extending mercy, and be ever patient in offering compassion and comfort. may we become the voice of every man and woman, and repeat confidently without end: "Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old". Amen

Holy Doors - Diocese of Motherwell

The Holy Door in Motherwell Cathedral was opened by Bishop Toal on Saturday 12th December.

On New Year's Day, a Holy Door at Carfin Grotto was also opened.

Lenten All-Night Vigil

On Friday 11th & Saturday 12th March 2016, St Gerard's hosted an All-Night Vigil for the Year of Mercy. The Vigil was another fantastic success and was a very spiritual and prayerful night for the many people who took part. A highlight of the Vigil was the powerful sermon delivered by Missionary of Mercy, Father Bobby Kane.

Pilgrimage to St Andrew's

Our Parish Pilgrimage to St Andrew's took place on Saturday 10th June 2016 and was a wonderful day.
