Faith sharing groups are a Lenten tradition here at St. Gertrude, providing the opportunity to join in active  reflection on faith in preparation for the renewal of our baptismal vows. If you are new to the parish, they are a way to meet other members of St. Gertrude, and for “seasoned” parishioners, they are a way to renew and deepen relationships.  

Below is a list of groups offered during the coming Lenten season. Sign up sheets are available on the table in the back of Church.
