Parents are always welcome but never obliged to accompany their child(ren) if desired in order to see what we do and to help their child(ren) feel more comfortable. Please contact the parish office if you you would like more information.

Are you in or above grade 2, including in high school? Our priests need your help! Become an altar server today!

 

Altar servers are a very important part of the liturgy, adding to the dignity and beauty of our parish Masses and helping them run smoothly. They also help with setting up before Mass and cleaning up after Mass. They make sure that Father has everything he needs to celebrate Sunday and weekday Masses and other liturgies.

 

With age and experience, altar servers can take on greater responsibilities at Mass, including using incense and even acting as a master of ceremonies.

 

Altar servers can also learn to serve weddings, funerals, confirmations, holy hours, processions, and other special liturgies and devotions.

Ongoing training is provided by our priests, and specially tailored vestments are provided by the parish (free of charge) for each altar server. If you (or your children) are interested in becoming altar servers at St. Gabriel's, please tell one of our priests or contact the parish office.

 


Family Holy Hour

 

Please join us in the church for a child-friendly time of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 5:30 to 6:15 pm.

 

All are welcome!
