Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Father Felix will lead a pilgrimage to the Holy Land March 12-21, 2019. During each day of your pilgrimage you will have time to renew and affirm your faith, to pray and reflect. The Scriptures will come alive as you visit Jesus’ homeland and you will be inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape. In addition to its rich historical heritage, the Holy Land is an encounter that has changed the lives of many pilgrims, an act of faith and prayer. Have you heard the call to experience for yourself the place of Christ’s Birth, the locations where He preached and the city in which he suffered, died, and rose from the dead for our salvation? For further information, call Jackie Seyfried at 804-561-2823. This pilgrimage will be open to non-parishioners until July 15th.

Votive Masses with the Anointing of the Sick
On Friday, Aug. 17 at 9 am and 7 pm join us in prayer for parishioners who need the anointing of the sick. Those in need of anointing and those who would like to pray for these parishioners are invited to attend these special masses in which the readings, prayer and music will all focus on healing. The anointing will be done during the Mass.
Looking for some fun and fellowship on Tuesdays?
All parishioners and their friends are invited to come on Tuesday mornings to the Commons from 10 a.m. – Noon to enjoy donuts, games, and fellowship. This is a seniors group, but all ages are welcome!

Check out the St. Gabriel Statue Design, our 20th anniversary gift to the parish!
At the welcome table in the Commons is a detailed sketch and model of the St. Gabriel Statue, the 20th anniversary gift that we are gifting to ourselves. The statue currently is in production at Dixon Studios, will be around 7 feet tall including base, and will be placed outside the sanctuary. It will be finished in pastel tones with natural wood grain showing through and gold highlights. Estimated completion is by the end of June and thanks to the generosity of fellow parishioners we are over half-way to our goal! We have raised 64% of the $20,250 needed. Please help us reach our fundraising goal for this custom hand-carved wooden statue of St. Gabriel created by Dixon Studios by using the donation envelopes on the Welcome Table.
Considering Joining the Catholic Church or Know of Someone Who is Interested?
St. Gabriel’s offers a year-round, self-paced process for those who are interested in becoming Catholic, or for those who would like to complete their Catholic initiation. You can join the process at any time, but please note, for those who are not baptized, they will receive their sacraments at the Easter Vigil so now is the time to inquire. Those who are baptized or needing to complete their Catholic initiation can receive their sacraments throughout the year. We welcome questions and to find out more, contact the parish office at 639-6712 or email email@example.com.
