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.

Mother of Mercy Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel Sign Up -Update: Hours Still Need to be Filled!

St. Gertrude Parish is blessed to announce the opening of the Mother of Mercy Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel located in St. Gertrude’s Parish Center. Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is a Eucharistic devotion in which the members of a community unite in taking hours of adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament, continuously during the day and night, seven days a week.

Please prayerfully consider your availability to spend one hour each week in intimate conversation and quiet meditation with your Lord.

Take a look at the openings in the schedule. There are 17 hours that do not have ANYONE committed to stay with the Blessed Sacrament. Any time slot you could commit to would be a blessing for our parish community and yourself!

If you would like to become one of our Perpetual Eucharistic adorers (also known as a Eucharistic Guardian), please contact us by using the sign-up sheet form below or this PDF File version.

Paper sign-up sheets can be deposited in the regular collection basket during Mass; in a basket that is located at the Blessed Virgin Mary Altar; or brought to the parish office.

    Holy Week Has Begun: We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ralph Martin this week to St. Gertrude’s as our Mission Preacher. Please see the information in the bulletin about all the good that he continues to do to build up God’s Kingdom. Please see page three for the schedule for the Mission, Confession times, and the schedule for the Sacred Triduum. I hope all of you can join us for all our services this week, especially the Easter Vigil when we will baptize three adults and receive 12 candidates into full communion in the Catholic Church.

    People have been asking about our progress with this year’s Catholic Ministries Appeal: We are doing well: $74,600 pledged ($46,000 collected) with 266 families participating. Our parish goal is $93,214. If you have not had the opportunity to give your contribution, please consider what you can do in the next few weeks. Thank you for your generosity to the Archbishop’s Charities within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

    2014 Retreat Talks with Rev. Chistopher Saliga, O.P.

    Sponsored by: The Knights of Columbus, Elder Council

    Every successful Christian leader looks for and sees God’s face, listens for and hears His voice. We can come to see and actually know God, Who is present to us in every situation of our lives. This vision and knowledge is essential for you and me to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20). The theme for the 2014 Retreat is “Listen to me! Go and make disciples of all nations!”

    Religious Education Registration 2014-2015



    The Saint Gertrude Parish Religious Education Program serves children of active parish families from age 3 through Grade 8. Active parish families are those who have registered as members of St. Gertrude, attend mass regularly, and support the parish through their gifts of time, talent, and treasure. Classes begin in mid-September and end in early May. We are currently forming classes and taking registrations for the 2014-2015 school year. Pre-school classes for ages 3, 4, and 5 are offered on Sunday mornings. Grades 1 through 8 have the option of registering for Sunday morning or Tuesday afternoon classes. Just a reminder, Religious Education Classes do not fulfill our Sunday obligation. It is an expectation that all students in Grades 1 – 8 attend Sunday Mass every week. Classes are offered as follows:

    Sundays 9:15am – 10:30am - Grades 1 – 8

    Sundays 11:00am – 12:00pm - Pre-school 3, 4, and 5 year olds

    Tuesdays 4:30pm – 5:45pm - Grades 1 – 8
