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.

Reading 1 BAR 4:5-12, 27-29

Fear not, my people!
Remember, Israel,
You were sold to the nations
not for your destruction;
It was because you angered God
that you were handed over to your foes.
For you provoked your Maker

From the Pastor 10/04/15

October is the Month of the Most Holy Rosary. The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary commemorates the great naval victory won by Christian forces over the Turks at Lepanto on Sunday, October 7, 1571. Pope Saint Pius V decreed that a feast in honor of Our Lady of Victories be celebrated each year on that day. His successor, Pope Gregory XIIII, transferred the feast to the first Sunday of October under the new title of the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, since it was precisely through the invocation of Our Lady of the Rosary that the victory was gained. In the reform of the liturgy after the II Vatican Council, the feast was returned to its original day of October 7.

This coming Monday, October 5 will be the annual Mass at 7:30pm for the enrollment of new members of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary. We invite all present Rosarians as well as the new members to this beautiful Mass which will be celebrated in honor of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary. The next day, October 6, St. Gertrude School will sponsor the Annual Rosary Procession at 7:00pm. All are encouraged to come and join us for this beautiful and long-standing tradition in our parish.

Server Program for Young People at St. Gertrude’s - Fall 2015

It is important for the Church to create the conditions that will permit many young people to say 'yes' in generous response to God‘s loving call... It is my hope that the local Churches will become places where vocations are carefully discerned and their authenticity tested; places where young men and women are offered wise and strong spiritual direction. In this way, the Christian community itself becomes a manifestation of the Love of God in which every calling is contained.
—Pope Benedict XVI, 49th World Day of Prayer for Vocations

St. Gertrude Church has two programs to help mentor and spiritually form our young people who wish to serve the Church, and possibly encourage our young people to discern more clearly a possible vocation to the priesthood and consecrated life.

The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy Sign Up

Join us for our next Great Adventures Bible Study program, The Prophets:Messengers of God’s Mercy featuring Thomas Smith—with supplemental information and explanation provided by Fr. Allen Moran, OP.

A study on the prophets has been one of the most requested programs from The Great Adventure. Like A Quick Journey and The Bible Timeline, The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy places the Old Testament prophets in context of salvation history, making their personalities and contexts easy to follow, understand, and relate to our lives.

If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance,warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.
