Easter Sunday was a wonderful day at St. Gertrude, with Masses packed with parishioners and guests joining together to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. 

Thank you to everyone who came to Church on Easter and throughout Lent; we were honored to have you here. We also appreciate the many people who came out for our Holy Week events and joined our Lenten faith-sharing groups. Every person who comes to St. Gertrude adds blessings to our parish, whether it be through volunteering, stewardship, the power of their prayers, or the chattering of small children that remind us of the joys of being young and happy. 

We also thank the many people who worked so hard to make Lent and Holy Week special. So many stepped up to help—our singers and musicians, our team that decorated the church, the many lectors, Eucharistic ministers, our RCIA leaders, the teens who helped at the Masses and participated in the Living Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, those who lead our faith-sharing groups, and many other unsung helpers—we appreciate your time and efforts! 

Great churches don’t just happen, they are created and nurtured by active, generous parishioners.   

Together We are St. Gertrude.
