Baby Bottle Fundraiser for Old St. Mary's Pregnancy Center


Again this year, the Knights of Columbus is organizing a Baby Bottle Fundraiser to benefit the Pregnancy Care Center at Old St. Mary's Catholic Church located in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. Over the last 7 years, the generous parishioners of St. Gertrude have donated over $45,000 to help Old St. Mary's provide education and care for women during and after pregnancy. Teri Huwel - the Director of the center - shares how these funds are used to support their mission:

"Our mission at Old St. Mary’s Pregnancy Center is to save the lives of unborn children and help their moms with material supplies. Also, our counseling and daily Bible Study (well attended) helps with Evangelization.

4th Saturday Rosary From the Knights of Columbus

A "Thank you" and "God Bless" to all St. Gertrude parishioners who participated in the 4th Saturday Rosary at the abortion facility in Sharonville over the last 6+ years. Thanks in part to your prayers, late-term abortionist Martin Haskell recently retired and closed the facility - although his business in Dayton remains open. Praise God for this life-affirming victory!

40 Days for Life - Lent 2018

From February 14th to March 25th our community will unite with many others from coast to coast – and internationally – for a major simultaneous pro-life mobilization – the 40 Days for Life campaign. Faithful believers are praying that these efforts will mark the beginning of the end of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.

Festival News - February 25, 2018

Thank you to everyone who has responded to the major award club (pink envelopes). We are off to a great start!

The auction is well under way, however we are in need of a few solicitors in the Montgomery and Milford areas. Each solicitor is being asked to follow up on 10 businesses that have already received an initial letter and pick up a donation. This project can be done anytime from now until May 15, so you can do this at your leisure. If you can help, please contact Cathy Egan at 290-3391.

Sharonville Abortion Center is Closed - Sharonville Respect Life Ministry Newsletter

Dear Parishioners,

I want to let you know that there has been no activity at the abortion mill last week or the days checked this week. Someone called the abortion center to schedule an abortion and she was told there are no services in Sharonville. God is good! I believe that our prayers and witness have been instrumental in the closing of this abortion mill. The rosary has been prayed there weekly for the last seven years. Our Lord listened.
