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.

The Incomprehensible Love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It would be good to research this and reflect upon Christ's love for us.

From the Pastor 06/25/17

On Thursday of this week, June 29, we celebrate the Solemnity of two great apostles: Saints Peter and Paul, the great Missionary Apostles to the Jews and to the Gentiles.

St. Peter who was martyred in the city of Rome for the faith around the year 64. Saint Mark ends the first half of his Gospel with a triumphant climax. He has recorded doubt, misunderstanding, and the opposition of many to Jesus. Now Peter makes his great confession of faith: “You are the Messiah” (Mark 8:29b). It was one of the many glorious moments in Peter’s life, beginning with the day he was called from his nets along the Sea of Galilee to become a fisher of men for Jesus.

The New Testament clearly shows Peter as the leader of the apostles, chosen by Jesus to have a special relationship with him. With James and John he was privileged to witness the Transfiguration, the raising of a dead child to life, and the agony in Gethsemane. His mother-in-law was cured by Jesus. He was sent with John to prepare for the last Passover before Jesus’ death. His name is first on every list of apostles.

The Need Is Dire

The archdiocese of Erbil, Iraq — home to one of the largest communities of displaced Christians in the Middle East — faces a shortfall of $600,000 a month in food aid. Without immediate support, the Christian population is facing a death sentence.

However, by donating a small gift each month, you can help save their lives.
