St. Gertrude is a Roman Catholic Parish in the Dominican heritage of prayer, preaching and teaching. Under our Lady’s mantle, gathered as the Body of Christ, we celebrate Him in the Sacraments, Sacred Scripture and in Catholic education. Serving our brothers and sisters in the New Evangelization, we seek to grow in love as we journey with Jesus to God the Father.

June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It would be good to research this and reflect upon Christ's love for us.

Regina Veritatis Intercessory Prayer

On the first Saturday of the month the Regina Veritatis Healing Prayer Ministry will offer intercessory prayer for all those in need. It will follow the 11:30 Mass and the Anointing of the Sick and take place in the Church.

This is a ministry for all those who are in need of private prayer due to trauma, brokenness, personal struggles within themselves or in families, physical healing needs and a desire for holiness in their lives as Catholics. It is also for those who desire to open their hearts more fully to God the Father’s love. Regina Veritatis also uses the Unbound Method of prayer for healing and freedom. This prayer releases those prayed for, from both past and present inner stumbling blocks to personal holiness. Our ministry is for any member of our parish, as well as, friends or acquaintances outside of the parish who are in need of personal prayer ministry.

Regina Veritatis is under the guidance of Rev. André-Joseph LaCasse, O.P., Pastor and Rev. Giles Dimock, O.P., Chaplain.

If you are interested, please call Nealy Mechley, Prayer Coordinator, at 340-4586 to schedule a time for private prayer or attend the monthly prayer service on the first Saturday of the month.

From the Pastor 06/25/17

On Thursday of this week, June 29, we celebrate the Solemnity of two great apostles: Saints Peter and Paul, the great Missionary Apostles to the Jews and to the Gentiles.

St. Peter who was martyred in the city of Rome for the faith around the year 64. Saint Mark ends the first half of his Gospel with a triumphant climax. He has recorded doubt, misunderstanding, and the opposition of many to Jesus. Now Peter makes his great confession of faith: “You are the Messiah” (Mark 8:29b). It was one of the many glorious moments in Peter’s life, beginning with the day he was called from his nets along the Sea of Galilee to become a fisher of men for Jesus.

The New Testament clearly shows Peter as the leader of the apostles, chosen by Jesus to have a special relationship with him. With James and John he was privileged to witness the Transfiguration, the raising of a dead child to life, and the agony in Gethsemane. His mother-in-law was cured by Jesus. He was sent with John to prepare for the last Passover before Jesus’ death. His name is first on every list of apostles.
