Stewardship (Giving)

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.

Family Caregivers Resource Group

Are you responsible of the care of an elderly or disabled loved one? You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours a day or as little as five minutes a week to someone you care for. Join us as we explore caregiving together and discuss such topics as maintaining balance as a caregiver; how to cope with feelings of guilt and stress; finding helpful resources to support the caregiver. We are meeting on Thursday, February 16 at 7-8pm in St. Joseph’s Room. If getting out to a support group is difficult …there is a online resource group for family caregivers CARING MATTERS E – CAREline via catholiccharitiesswo.org. It provides caregiver information; stress relief; e-mailing caregiver questions.

Profile in Stewardship - Kevin Lynch

Kevin Lynch, one of the Co-founders of the Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Greater Cincinnati in 1986, has been a member of St. Gertrude Parish for many years. He served as President of the Cincinnati Fellowship for many years and was Coordinator of the “ANSWER THE CALL” Men’s Conferences for nine years.

Kevin helped establish the National Fellowship of Catholic Men in 1999 and recently retired as the Chief Executive and Trustee of that organization following 10 years of service. He is now stepping down from his leadership of the Parish-based Catholic Men’s Fellowship group at St. Gertrude after several years at the helm. We decided to sit down with Kevin and learn what led to him to help establish the Catholic men’s movement, in Cincinnati and nationally, and why he devoted 25 years of his life to it.

Special Night for the Knights

Jerry Trumpey District Deputy for the Knights of Columbus presented Grand Knight William Malarick with the Star Council Award for 2010-2011. On that same afternoon our Chaplain and Pastor Rev. André-Joseph LaCasse, O.P. at St. Gertrude Parish made his 4th Degree in our Hall in a special Exemplification for clergy. It was a truly beautiful and moving ceremony.
