Meal Pack – Postponed

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!

Sunday Evening Mass time changes to 5pm on September 12

SUNDAY EVENING MASS at St. Gabriel – Do you have a busy weekend schedule? If you have ever had to miss Mass because of a family function, travel, or kids’ activity, there is a solution for you! To strengthen our connection to God and one another, we have ADDED a Mass time to our regular St. Gabriel schedule. You may join us every week at 6:30 pm (summer schedule). Please consider stepping in to help with the ministries at this new time – greeters, altar servers, ushers, readers, musicians, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, etc. You may direct any questions to Deacon Tom Gritton at deacontomgritton@gmail.com

As always, we look forward to raising our hearts and voices to the Lord together in gratitude and praise! Come encounter Jesus at St. Gabriel at whatever time works best for you, and please help spread the word to your family, friends, and neighbors!
