Joseph Gérard (12 March 1831 – 29 May 1914) was a French Roman Catholic priest and a professed member of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate; he worked in the missions among the Basotho people in Lesotho and the Free State province of South Africa. His works in the mission are now attributed to a partial degree to a boom in Roman Catholicism in Lesotho where he was well known and regarded for his extensive work; he was even working up until a month prior to his own death just before World War I.
