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.

Rosary vigil in front of Sharonville abortion center

Update - August 20, 2014 (Cincinnati, OH):

News outlets are reporting that late term abortionist Martin Haskell will not appeal to the First District Court of Appeals in an attempt to contest Judge Jerry Metz's decision to uphold the Ohio Department of Health order that his Women's Med Center abortion facility be closed for operating outside Ohio health and safety laws.

This Saturday Fr. Andre-Joseph from St. Gertrude's Parish will be leading rosary at 9:00 a.m. Join others in praying for the closing of the abortion mill and the end to abortion. Saturday rosary will continue weekly until the abortion mill is permanently gone from Sharonville!

"When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, "Spare him because he loved us," and God will look at you and say not, "Did you succeed?" but "Did you try?" -- Henry Hyde

Concluding with Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary on May 30th

Join us in studying what is considered by many to be "the greatest single book of Marian spirituality ever written," (TAN Publishers). True Devotion to Mary has influenced countless souls, including St. John Paul II and Blessed Mother Teresa.

Meetings will be twice a month and offered at two different locations:
Tuesdays, 12:30 – 2:30 pm, St. Gertrude Parish Center Lobby
Saturdays, 9:30 – 11:30 am, St. Margaret of York

** Babysitting available on Tuesdays only provided at least 6 families request it **
*** Book may be purchased at the Catholic Shop in Madeira, translation by Fr. Faber ***

St John Paul II called this book a “decisive turning point” in his life after reading it at age 19.
His papal motto, “Totus Tuus,” was taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s writings on the Blessed Mother.
Pope Pius IX declared that St. Louis de Montfort’s devotion to Mary was the best and most acceptable form of devotion to Our Lady.

From the Pastor 08/17/14

The Rites of Christian Initiation, RCIA, will begin on September 8, 7:00pm, in the Parish Center lobby. RCIA is for people who are not baptized and are seeking baptism in the Catholic Church. It is for baptized Protestants who would like to discern a possible conversion to Catholicism. It is also for baptized Catholics who have not finished their Sacraments of Initiation, namely Confirmation and Holy Communion. Finally, it is for fully initiated Catholics who would like a thorough review of their faith.

Every year we ask you to discern someone you may want to invite to the Catholic Faith. Perhaps your spouse who is not Catholic, but has been thinking about it for a while. Perhaps a friend you have been speaking to about your faith. Perhaps it is a co-worker who seems to be open when you share your faith. Who has God put into your life that could benefit from the great gift of the Catholic Faith and everlasting life with God? Ask the Lord to give you the Holy Spirit’s gift of courage to bring others to the Catholic Church.
