Every Sunday at 10:30 am, we live-stream Mass from St. Gertrude Church using Facebook Live. Please click HERE to be connected to our parish Facebook page. After Mass, we upload the video to our YouTube channel.
Mary Clare Barker, our Music Minister, has created a song sheet with lyrics for music for the Mass HERE. This Sunday, Mary Clare will be accompanied by cantor Jim Manzardo, along with George Siegle on trumpet and Nicholas Bussey on trombone.
We will continue to stream Masses at 10:30 am on Sundays until we can gather together in Church.
Below are the names and photos of St. Gertrude parishioners who have passed away since the state's stay-at-home order began. Their memorials will have to be scheduled at a later date and will depend upon the wishes of the families. We ask that you keep them and their family and friends in your prayers.
Greetings, St. Gertrude parishioners,
We, the Refugee and Immigrant Ministry, are very aware that many people in our community and city did not nor will not benefit from any stimulus package because they are undocumented immigrants.
If you or someone you know is in that situation and struggling to make ends meet, please contact the parish. Some resources may be available. We know too that being undocumented is a sensitive matter and be assured that privacy and confidentiality will be greatly respected.
If you or someone you know is in that situation and struggling to make ends meet, please contact the parish. You can leave a message at 773.764.3621 or email email@example.com. Some resources may be available.
Nosotros, el ministerio para refugiados y inmigrantes de la parroquia de Sta. Gertrude, estamos muy conscientes de que muchas personas en nuestra comunidad y ciudad non recibieron los cheques de estímulo del gobierno federal porque son inmigrantes sin documentos gubernamentales.
Si usted, o alguien que Ud conoce, está en esta situación y con dificultades económicas, por favor pónganse en contacto con la parroquia. Es posible que haya algunos recursos disponibles. También sabemos que ser un inmigrante sin documentos es un asunto sensitivo y puede estar seguro que todo se mantendrá en privado. Usted puede dejar un recado llamando la parroquia, 773.764.3621 o mandando un correo electrónico a firstname.lastname@example.org. Es posible que haya recursos disponibles.
