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.

From the Pastor 11/22/15

A Blessed Solemnity of Christ the King. With this celebration we come to the end of another liturgical year. Next weekend we begin the Season of Advent and preparations for Christmas. I am gearing up for a very busy season. This coming Saturday, after the 8:00am Mass, we will be changing the Music Hymnal in all the pews. Anyone who can stay behind for about a 1⁄2 hour to help us out would be appreciated.

This Thursday we also will celebrate Thanksgiving. I will be very busy in the kitchen preparing the Thanksgiving meal for the community. Please remember that there is only one Mass on Thanksgiving Day scheduled for 9:30am with the Dominican Community. Also please bring non-perishable food items that will be used by the St. Vincent de Paul Society for those in need.

Rosary vigil in front of Sharonville abortion center

This Saturday Fr. André-Joseph will be leading rosary at 9:30 a.m. Join others in praying for the closing of the abortion mill and the end to abortion. Saturday rosary will continue weekly until the abortion mill is permanently gone from Sharonville!

Please note the delayed start time on Saturday, November 28. We will leave from the Parish about 9:10am and begin the rosary about 9:30am.

"When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, "Spare him because he loved us," and God will look at you and say not, "Did you succeed?" but "Did you try?" -- Henry Hyde
