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.

Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima

I am very happy to announce a new gift to our parish of the Lady of Fatima International Pilgrim Statue. This gift is from a generous donator and from the Knights of Columbus. Here below you will see the progress as our statue was being carved from wood in Portugal. The statue of Our Lady of Fatima was designed based on the description of Sr. Lucia, one of the three young children who saw Our Lady on the 13th of each month from May to October 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. It is 100% hand-carved from a solid block of Lindenwood by the best sculptors in Portugal. The trim is 24K gold paint. She has crystal eyes. There are three leaves from a Holmoak tree in Fatima embedded in the base of the statue with a glass cover. The crown is the Gold Pilgrim Crown with rhinestones and is gold-plated.

After the month of May, Our Lady will be placed just outside the candle chapel on a pedestal for all to venerate her.

Vigil Praise

Vigil Praise, Youth-Inspired Event for All Ages, Debuts Here May 1

It grew out of extending Encounter youth events to people of all ages.

“Vigil Praise,” an evening of Eucharistic Adoration and worship combined with music and more, will debut May 1st in The Athenaeum of Ohio/Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West’s Chapel of St. Gregory of the Great.

Several Catholic ministries came together to create the event, which, like many events growing in popularity in the Archdiocese and around the country, will center on Adoration.

“The idea is to offer something more for young Catholic adults, something counter-cultural on Friday nights,” says Dr. Tobias Nathe, assistant professor of moral theology at The Athenaeum and director of the St. James Project, one of the sponsoring ministries.
