Saint Gerard Majella is known the world over, lovingly if unofficially, as ‘the Mothers’ Saint’. Thousands invoke him as ‘Patron of a Good Confession’. Many pray to him as patron of a religious vocation, as friend of the worker. His help in various circumstances in life has made him beloved of all sorts of people.
Hundreds of thousands have joined the Saint Gerard’s Family Leageue since it was established in Ireland in 1950. Why not you?
More information on Saint Gerard can be obtained from the League at The Shrine of St Gerard, 722 Antrim Road, Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim. BT367PG.
Prayer for Motherhood.
O good St Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and wonder worker of our day, confidently I call upon you and seek your aid. On Earth you always fulfilled God’s designs, help me now to do the holy will of God. Implore the Master of Life, from whom all paternity proceeds, to render me fruitful in offspring, that I may raise up children to God in this life, and in the world to come heirs to the Kingdom of His Glory. Amen.

At the rear of the Church on what used to be the Presbytery Garden is our Bowling Green. The Saint Gerards Bowling Club play in several local leagues.
The green opened on 3rd April 1983 following two or more years of planning and hard work by members and other volunteers.
New members are always welcome.
