St. Gertrude Parish is a caring, compassionate community whose mission is to serve others, seek to change social structures in conformity with the Good News we proclaim. We are committed to social action in the neighborhoods of the parish, the city, the Church and the wider world. St. Gertrude has many opportunities to volunteer your time and talents. Below you will find ways to get directly involved in our parish community.

The Archdiocese has provided comprehensive guidelines for how parishes can move forward in once again celebrating mass together in church.
We need volunteers to manage each event (mass, baptism, funeral, reconciliation, marriage, private prayer, etc.) that will take place in church. The safety protocols will be in place for an extended time. As such, we are asking you to prayerfully consider joining our volunteer corps for this effort.
HERE is the archdiocese website for everything you could possibly want to know about volunteering.
We need many volunteers to fill teams for greeting/ushering, set-up, and clean-up. For more information on volunteer responsibilities please view the training webinar available at the above link. For safety reasons, volunteers should be between 18-64 years of age and not have conditions that would put them at risk for negative outcomes from COVID-19 infection (immunosuppressive therapy, heart or lung disease, cancer, etc.)
If you would like to participate on a team, please download this form and email it to Kevin Chears at email@example.com and include your preferred e-mail and telephone number.
