St. Gabriel Parish will participate again in the annual ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive with donation boxes near the church entrance from February 13 to March 7. This is a major collection drive involving many area churches and organizations. The goal to stock the shelves of our local homeless shelters and crisis programs with a year’s worth of hygiene products. We hope to again meet this goal during the pandemic, as we did last year. Please consider donating items such as laundry soap, shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, bathroom tissue, paper towels, etc. For more information and full list of items requested, please see https://919.thefamily.net/community/help-for-the-homeless/
This Lent, commit to our global human family through daily prayer, weekly fasting, and almsgiving. Jesus asks us to care for our sisters and brothers and to recognize him in them. With CRS Rice Bowl, we can answer this Gospel call. What you give up for Lent changes lives . . . CRS Rice Bowls will be available on Ash Wednesday and the preceding weekend. Take one and fill it during Lent with your donations, and return it to church by Palm Sunday (March 28). If unable to pick up a Rice Bowl this year, please consider sending a check to the parish office to support the CRS Rice Bowl campaign (make check out to St Gabriel Parish, and note on the check that donation is for CRS Rice Bowl). To learn more about CRS Rice Bowl and to view weekly "stories of hope" about CRS' global work, visit the CRS Rice Bowl website: https://www.crsricebowl.org/about

In addition, please check in with your neighbors, adult children, friends, etc. Some of them may want to be included as well!

Thank you for your prayers and contributions in support of the Rise Against Hunger Meal Pack event, co-hosted by St. Gabriel and St. Margaret Mary parishes. Contributions and support from the two parishes will enable us to assemble and package at least 35,000 meals! However, concern for safety and welfare of parishioners amid the COVID-19-Coronavirus outbreak has led to a temporary postponement of the Meal Pack event. Please note that this is a postponement and not a cancellation of the event. Details of a future date and time for this exciting parish service project will be announced to all parishioners via the bulletin at a later date. Lenten blessings!
We have 3 committees that send out home-made cards. Approximately 75 cards are mailed each month. Currently there are 4 volunteers making cards and we could use some help. The Homebound Committee is sending 40+ cards per month and likes to use any uplifting card. They use monthly themes, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving etc. The Bereavement Committee sends anywhere from 6 to 15 cards per month and likes Thinking of You cards with the fronts decorated, and the inside blank. We send birthday cards to parishioners once they reach their 80th birthday which total 20+ each month. You can make the cards at home at your leisure and drop them off at the Parish office. If you aren't a crafter but would still like to help, we can always use envelopes, stamps, or cardstock, decorative paper, etc. Please do not drop off cards sent to you as a gift from a donation to a charitable organization. Thank you
