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.

Pastoral Council: I would personally like to thank Dwight Stephenson and Diana Adler for the service they have rendered our parish by serving on the Pastoral Council these past three years. Thanks to Dwight for serving as Chair of the Council for one of those years, and to Diana for serving as Co-Chair for the St. Gertrude Feast Day Celebration. Please say a prayer for the Stephenson family who will be relocating out of town at the end of the summer. Also, we wish to welcome two new members to the Pastoral Council: Ben Hoffman and Tish Shefcik. This year I am happy to announce that Mark Kosobud will serve as Chair, Emma Friemoth as Vice-Chair, and Jill Woods as Secretary.
