Dominican Friars

St. Gertrude Priory, which is attached to the parish, is home to a community of Dominican friars who live and pray together, led by their democratically elected prior. The friars serve in a variety of ministries for St. Gertrude Parish, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, and the Dominican Province of St. Joseph, as well as the wider Dominican Order. The priory is also home to the Novitiate for the Province of St. Joseph.
