St. Gertrude is a Roman Catholic Parish in the Dominican heritage of prayer, preaching and teaching. Under our Lady’s mantle, gathered as the Body of Christ, we celebrate Him in the Sacraments, Sacred Scripture and in Catholic education. Serving our brothers and sisters in the New Evangelization, we seek to grow in love as we journey with Jesus to God the Father.

Mother of Mercy Perpetual Adoration Chapel Closure

The Mother of Mercy Perpetual Adoration chapel will be closing at 9pm Friday, January 18th due to expected inclement weather.

The Chapel will opened Monday, January 21st at 9am.

When the chapel is "closed" for inclement weather, the Blessed Sacrament will be placed in the tabernacle. Registered perpetual adorers do not have to attend their hour during this period. The chapel will remain open for quiet prayer, but we encourage people not to venture out during storms. During the public hours of 6am-9pm the door will remain unlocked. During the night hours of 9pm-6am the door will be locked as usual. You will need the code to enter the chapel during the night hours.

This weekend's Bible Study is cancelled.

Pro-Life Rosary – January 26

"Please join the Knights of Columbus and St. Gertrude Respect Life Committee in praying an on-campus Rosary for those impacted by abortion on Saturday January 26th at 9AM. We will gather round the Pro-Life monument adjacent to the parking lot at St. Gertrude.

January marks the 45th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision by the US Supreme Court; but it also marks the 1-year anniversary of the closing of the abortion mill in Sharonville. Let's pray that 2019 brings additional 'good news' - and God’s blessings - for the culture of life! For additional information, please contact Tom Hahn of the Knights of Columbus at 513-831-2386."

Ye Shall Know the Truth - a series of 50 talks by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton John Sheen (born Peter John Sheen, May 8, 1895 – December 9, 1979) was an American bishop (later archbishop) of the Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. His cause for canonization as a saint was officially opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of "heroic virtues" – a major step towards beatification – so he is now referred to as "Venerable".

Ye Shall Know the Truth - a series of 50 talks by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. (Select Read more to see all 50 talks.)
