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.

*** Book may be purchased at the Catholic Shop in Madeira, translation by Fr. Faber ***

St John Paul II called this book a “decisive turning point” in his life after reading it at age 19.
His papal motto, “Totus Tuus,” was taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s writings on the Blessed Mother.
Pope Pius IX declared that St. Louis de Montfort’s devotion to Mary was the best and most acceptable form of devotion to Our Lady.






From the Pastor 08/31/14

St. Gertrude School: Welcome to all students, families, faculty and staff back to school. Every year it is such a blessing to hear the patter of little feet and the excited voices of children return to the offices. Mrs. Normand, our kindergarten teacher, brought around the little ones to the office the first day of school. They are always so much fun. I asked all of them how many had cried that morning, and all of them shared with me who was and was not crying. Mrs. Normand just looked at me with that expression, “Don’t get the children going, Father.”

It is such a blessing to have my office in the school and to be part of the school environment. I cannot express to all of you how important our school is, and my complete support of our wonderful Catholic school. St. Gertrude School is a very important apostolate of our parish. Parents have many reasons for choosing the education of their children. In the world we live in today it is so important to consider a quality religious and academic education for your children in an environment that encourages faith, virtue, and academics. Of course the presence of our Dominican sisters is a great blessing. Very few children in our world today have the great gift of being around religious sisters, friars, and brothers. At St. Gertrude School we have it all: Catholic environment, Catholic faith and virtues, excellent academics, and dedicated sisters, faculty and staff.
