There’s nothing like a trip down the river to get outside and beat the heat. Join us at Scenic River Canoe Excursions in Milford for a 5-mile kayak/canoe trip. Cost is $40, and we suggest bringing $5 in case you want to buy a cold beverage after the excursion. Spots are limited to 30 participants. Please visit https://my.stgertrude.org/s/event-list to register, beginning July 6.

Want something a little different for your kids to do this summer? St. Gertrude's music program will be holding a three-day camp for children ages five to 13 to teach kids how to read and sing the distinctive music of our faith: Gregorian chant. There will also be an art session each day during which the children will create and paint examples of letters inspired by ancient illuminated music manuscripts.
When: July 8-10, 2021
Where: St. Gertrude Parish Center
Cost: First child is $50. Each additional child is $25. (Cost covers art supplies, music handouts, and snacks.)
The camp is limited to 40 children. To reserve your child's spot, please register at https://my.stgertrude.org/s/class-list. If you do not yet have a MyStGertrude login yet, please email Kristen Eggers at email@example.com. If you have any questions about chant camp, please contact Catherine Fishlock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
