REACHING OUT WITH SERVANT HEARTS
FROM OUR PASTOR

On behalf of our entire community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Saint Gilbert Parish! We regard ourselves not just as a warm and welcoming Catholic congregation, but as a family of committed disciples of Jesus Christ, broad and diverse, yet reflective of our small-town heritage.


The life and mission of our parish expresses itself in three areas of endeavor - liturgy and prayer, faith formation, and community-building and service. This statement of mission can be summarized in three simple words - prayer, learning, and service - because that’s what we believe the Gospel and the Church call us to as intentional followers of Christ.


I am partial, of course, but I believe we at Saint Gilbert do these three things effectively, and that is attributable to the commitment and efforts of many dedicated volunteers, members of parish ministries, and staff who carefully plan, organize, and direct the work of building Christ’s Kingdom in our midst. We are privileged to serve you in the name of Christ, and we invite you to join with us by offering your talents and what time you are able to the service of others.


Peace,


Fr. John Chrzan

RCIA BLESSING
ARE YOU SOMEONE OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO…

 

  • Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?

  • Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?

  • Was baptized in a Christian faith and has questions about the Catholic faith?

  • Is looking for a deeper relationship with Jesus but does not know how to start?

 

We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.
