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!

Special Note for Fr. Ryan!

After further consultation with teachers, I have decided to continue the CCD Program as it has been done in recent years.  The 2017-18 CCD year will begin on Sunday, September 10th, with Mass at 6PM.  

Classes for children 1st - 5th grade will be held on Mondays,  6:00 - 7:15 PM.

Classes for children 6th - 11th grade will be held on Sundays, 7:00 - 8:15 PM.

All students in the 11th grade or older should register for Confirmation.  I will instruct the Confirmation Class.  I promise that everyone will enjoy an essential coverage of Catholic Doctrine.  While the Confirmation classes are set for Sundays, I will also  be flexible in offering opportunities that will be more convenient for students unable to attend at that time. 

The most important conclusion of Archdiocesan Synod is the spread of the Gospel.  Euntes Docete Omnes Gentes:"  "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations".

I ask all Parishioners to help with this work.  Please encourage all the children that you know to attend CCD.

Finally, please pray for the success of our program.

Fr. Ryan
