Memory Tree


Saint Gertrude’s Memory Tree is a special way to honor loved ones who have passed away. Memorial tags are $10 per loved one or couple. As memorial dedications are made, the tree will grow more beautiful with an abundance of thoughts and prayers for those honored.

The tree is located in the front hall lobby and will welcome guests, students, faculty, and staff every day of the holiday season. It will remain up until January 3, 2019.

All dedications go toward The Fund for Saint Gertrude, which provides critical financial assistance for students, academic programs, educational initiatives, and faculty professional development.
