Message from Fr. Lopez:

Greetings and welcome to the St. Gertrude Church website.  I hope you look around and see what the parish can offer you.  If you are seeking a church home and live in the Kingsville area, you are most welcome. St. Gertrude Parish is a worshiping community which seeks to live its Catholic faith based on Christian values. The parish is unified in diversity, committed to community service, and called to extend God's love to everyone. Using our living faith, we will strive to motivate children and families to embrace the Catholic tradition, through excellence in education and commitment to the community, so that it might now and always enrich every aspect of their lives.

Yours in Christ,
Very Rev. Joseph Lopez, Pastor


RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is for those who lack sacraments of initiation--Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation.  It is also for non-Catholics who wish to learn more about the Catholic faith.  Classes are on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. in the Newman Center and Chapel at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.


Religious Education Registration

Registration for Religious Education classes can be done online or at the Parish Office.  New students and those receiving sacraments need to provide a copy of their baptism certificate.  


Theology on Tap

For young adults from the age of 21 to 39, the Diocese of Corpus Christi is offering a new program: Theology on Tap. It's a wonderful opportunity for young Catholic adults to discuss their faith, life, questions, and passions in a comfortable environment. Theology on Tap offers the chance to have open discussions with Father Lopez and other young adults all while being in a unique and open atmosphere.

Theology on Tap is held every first Monday of the month at Javelina Watering Hole Brewery (1021 S.14th St. in Kingsville)

We hope to see you there! For more information call the Parish Office


First Communion Photos & Certificates

They are now available at the office. For those who have not paid it will be $20 for the photos. Office hours are weekdays from 9:00am-Noon and 1-5pm

It has come to our attention that a texting scam is happening. A number under 301-690-6486 is posing as Father Lopez and is attempting to solicit money. Do not respond!
