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.

Living Lent

Lent is a time for sacrifice, discipline, reflection, and prayer, as we prepare for the joy of Easter. During Lent during this Year of Faith, use silence ... confession ... the saints ... faith witness .. and the Eucharist to deepen and strengthen your Catholic faith.

From the Pastor 03/01/2015

I hope you have all entered into the season of Lent with an open heart and mind to what Jesus wants to do for you during this holy season. Pray to the Holy Spirit that indeed this will be a powerful Lent for each of you.

We are now on the last stretch to collect $350,000 to reach our goal of $3.2 million to be a debt free parish. I hope many who have not yet responded will see the importance of participating in the Challenge, and be part of the wonderful future we have for our beloved parish. I am also happy to report that the Provincial of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph has fully endorsed our efforts. Below please find a letter addressed to the entire parish from Fr. Kenneth Letoile, O.P., our Provincial and former pastor.

Thank you and God bless you. A blessed week to all of you,

Rev. André-Joseph LaCasse, O.P., Pastor


Greetings from our Provincial Offices located at St. Vincent Ferrer Church in New York City.

It is so great to be, once again, affiliated with this wonderful parish! From my time as pastor of St. Gertrude from 1999-2008, to my new role as Prior Provincial of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph, I can humbly say that St. Gertrude Parish, and its people, hold a very special place in my heart.
