Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate Fr. Rich and his many years of service as a priest and his time at St. Gertrude!
We especially thank the singers and musicians, especially the Heavenly Horns, who played after Mass, our photographer, Maria Ugarte, and other parishioners who stepped in to make the event run smoothly.
Fr. Rich will soon move to his home in St. Joseph, MI and start a four month trip around the U.S. in January!
On January 1, 2023, Fr. Mike became the Administrator of St. Gertrude Parish. In our newly updated system, the Archdiocese only makes pastors on July 1st each year. So, Fr. Mike will be Administrator from January 1-June 30, and then become pastor on July 1, 2023.
