St. Gertrude the Great

Our small parish is divided by Bayou Des Allemands.  Part of our parish is in the Archdiocese of New Orleans and part of the parish is the the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux.  While a small parish, we have a rich history of deeply rooted Catholic men, women and children!


Thought to Ponder...

"You have a God-sized hole.  You cannot fill it with things, money, other people, experiences, or accomplishments.  Only God can cil that hole."

Called to Share Your Faith!
Thanks to all our CCD teachers who volunteered their time to teach this year, you are a blessing to our parish and your young people!
