Server Program for Young People at St. Gertrude’s - Fall 2015

It is important for the Church to create the conditions that will permit many young people to say 'yes' in generous response to God‘s loving call... It is my hope that the local Churches will become places where vocations are carefully discerned and their authenticity tested; places where young men and women are offered wise and strong spiritual direction. In this way, the Christian community itself becomes a manifestation of the Love of God in which every calling is contained.
—Pope Benedict XVI, 49th World Day of Prayer for Vocations

St. Gertrude Church has two programs to help mentor and spiritually form our young people who wish to serve the Church, and possibly encourage our young people to discern more clearly a possible vocation to the priesthood and consecrated life.
