Stewardship (Giving)

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.
