Repair, Renew , Refresh

Make a Contribution



In response to a generous gift of $100,000 directed to the parish, by former parishioner Raymond Simon upon his retirement from the Polk Brothers Foundation, we are launching an initiative to raise another $100,000 from parishioner donations to repair, renew and refresh our campus.


The fundraiser runs from September 19 through November 14. These funds will enable us to continue the mission of St Gertrude by maintaining our buildings and supporting Catholic Education.


The targeted projects are:

  • Exterior roof repairs to the church and rectory & internal repair to damaged ceilings and walls.
  • Installation of additional handrails between the main floor of the church and the sanctuary. 
  • Re-carpeting the church.
  • Rebuilding the deteriorated entrance stairs to the Parish Hall building and the handicapped-accessible entrance to the church. 
  • Establishing the St Gertrude Catholic Education fund to assist students of Northside Catholic Academy. 


Thank you for your generosity, 

Fr. Richard Prendergast, Pastor,
