Vision and Mission

Located on Long Island's North Shore, our parish of St. Gertrude's is a unique Catholic Community, alive in faith and family traditions.

Led by the Spirit, we come together to share the Eucharist, strive to be open and inviting and spread God's  word through compassionate service to all.

As a prayerful, nurturing and hope-filled community, we seek to grow and be better stewards of God's gifts by sharing Christ's love with everyone.

Short History

St. Gertrude's Church began as a mission church in 1905 with a priest assigned for the summer months from St. Dominic's in Oyster Bay, starting in 1907.  While construction of the church was underway, masses were celebrated in a huge tent erected on the church grounds.  At this time masses were said once a month in the winter and as many as five masses on Sunday during the summer.
