Message on St Gertrude School from Ralph Martin

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I don't often conduct parish missions these days so that I can focus on clergy and deacon events. However, I've recently completed three missions, each one special in its own way. I conducted a three-night parish mission at St. Gertrude in Madeira, OH, a suburb of Cincinnati.

Religious Education Registration 2014-2015

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

Passion Play - Afternoon

Sooner than we expect, our Lenten preparation will culminate in the celebration of Holy Week. One opportunity to enter more fully into preparation for that celebration is the upcoming presentation by the 7th grade students of the annual SGS Passion Play, to which you are invited.
