We, the partnered parish communities of St. Gertrude and
Christ the King, are faith-filled Catholics who have been called by our Baptism and
empowered by the Good News of Jesus Christ to be Church for all. Although made up of
multicultural faith communities we are ever united by our common faith.
We are committed to “building up the Body of Christ” through Word, Worship,
Evangelization, Leadership, Service, Stewardship, and Fellowship. Dedicated to deepening our
love of Christ and one another, together we strive to become a living reflection of Christ for
We willingly accept our obligation to be the “Light of the World” for others and in that spirit
we promise to use our resources to practice gospel justice, to heal divisive wounds among
God’s people and to join with all people of good will in addressing the spiritual and physical
needs of all.
