Every summer, St. Gertrude Parish hosts a parish festival to gather parishioners and friends together to catch up, meet each other, and enjoy the summer as a parish family! The High School will be gathering at the main entrance of the festival at 7pm on Friday. All high schoolers are invited to come catch up, hangout, and enjoy the festival together! Some Core team members will also be gathering at that time! We hope to see many of you on Friday, June 7th from 7-9pm.
Check out the Abide Conference flyer and invite your friends to consider attending!
Brace yourself…this summer, High School Youth Ministry will be taking an overnight to Hocking Hills State Park to get outside and enjoy the beauty for nature. We will begin with 8am Sunday Mass at St. Gertrude, carpool to Hocking Hills, explore the park, go on a hike, have a bonfire, sleep in cabins, etc. It is going to be an incredible time! Registration will open below at 8am on April 1st (no joke).
Help us spread the word cause it’s going to be lit! Here is the Hocking Hills Overnight Flyer!
This event seeks to invite teens to behold the authentic joy of the Christian community, to cultivate an interest in the gospel through beauty, and to propose Jesus Christ as the answer to their deepest desires. Think a festival feel with competition games, food, music, etc. The hope is that you are able to invite a friend who may not be involved in youth ministry to attend!
Here is the AmpFest Permission Form.
The High School Youth Ministry Program at St. Gertrude is comprised of Discipleship Cells. These single-sex grade-based small groups help foster deep friendships and an environment conducive to mentorship and a support in the spiritual life. The Discipleship Cells will be meeting every Sunday from 7-9pm at the parish. Each Discipleship Cell contains about 7-10 teens and are led by 2-3 trained adults. If you are interested in being plugged into a Discipleship Cell or would like more information, please return to our 'Home' Page scroll to the bottom and email us!
