Grounds Care Ministry to Host 3rd Annual Plant & Bake Sale ...and more! Once again, we will host this event on the parish grounds on May 19 to coincide with MADEIRA’S CITYWIDE YARD SALE! Highlights of this year’s event is our OWN yard sale where you can rent spaces ($20.00 for 2 parking spaces) to sell your treasures. Spaces must be reserved in advance. We will conduct this event, rain or shine, from 9:00am until 1:00pm by the gym entrance, as well as on Sunday after all morning Masses. Whatever you don’t sell can be donated to a local charity and we’ll take it there for you!

“You shall not carve idols for yourselves in the shape of anything …” Exodus 20:4

Have you created idols for yourself in different shapes? An idol can be in the shape of money, sports, fashion, travel, or anything else we value more than God and His Word to us. As we enter into the 3rd Sunday of Lent, let’s help each other be accountable to God’s Word and continue our fasting and doing good works above and beyond the pleasures of indulging in idolatry and its related activities. After all, that is what stewardship calls us to do and be — more for others and for our God.

Fun Bunch hits their Stride

Saint Gertrude Church has something special taking place within one of its more than 50 ministries.

Stewardship and Development 03/04/12

It has truly been a blessing to welcome so many new families to our parish and school thus far in 2011-2012. So many of them have become involved in parish and school life already, thereby helping us start a new chapter in the history of St. Gertrude. As you can see by the photos of our most recent Stewardship Sunday, interest remains high for those seeking ways to offer their God-given talent to further our ministries.

Stewardship and Development 02/26/12

The topic of money can be a sensitive one, but we can’t shy away from tough topics as it affects our parish livelihood. Over the course of the past few months, the pastor has addressed our budget issues so as to remain totally transparent to you. As you know, there are many opportunities to share your resources throughout the year and we are entering another surge period. As we reinvigorate school development efforts with an annual fund appeal, we are also nearing the ramp-up of spring sports and festival presale activity.

St Gertrude Parish Lenten Stewardship of Prayer

Pray. Fast. Share.

Together as a parish, we enter into this Season of Lent - this time of conversion - with open hearts, minds and spirits.

As we travel along the journey, we pray that we may find God’s Peace in quiet moments of prayer, God’s Strength in times of sacrifice, and God’s Love in each other’s generous Acts of kindness.

Together, we continue to live the Mission of Christ.
