New! Didn’t get a chance to have your photo taken for the New Parish Directory?
You may submit a photo for the directory! Photos need to be horizontal orientation and at least 4” x 6” with 250 dpi (dots per inch) to ensure good quality. Please send photos to the parish office or you may email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a $10 fee for the cost of the directory if your photo was not taken by Lifetouch. Photos and payment must be submitted to the office by March 26th to be included. IF YOU WANT A DIRECTORY, YOUR PHOTO HAS TO BE IN THE BOOK.
Contribute to the Saint Gabriel Statue - our gift to one another!
To commemorate the 20th Anniversary we are commissioning a statue of our patron saint and we invite you to contribute to this gift to one another! To give, you can place your donation in the parish mail slot located in the commons; bring or send it the the parish office at 8901 Winterpock Road, Chesterfield, VA 23832. All donations are welcome and envelopes for the gift are on the Welcome Table in the Commons.
To Meet Your Parish Family!
If you just ate at a great restaurant, you’d let friends and family know, wouldn’t you? You might even post a selfie there on Facebook. Let’s do the same at the parish!
Stats show the best promotion for any organization or product is to recommend it to another. No Facebook page, speaker, website or bulletin can match YOUR ability to draw others to the parish.
So as we celebrate the past 20 years of St. Gabriel’s we are asking you to Invite5 to your parish and let’s watch it grow! Over the course of the next year – reach out to at least 5 people and invite them to an event, to mass and dinner or brunch with you, to a prayer service, Eucharistic adoration or to one of the many formation opportunities the parish offers. There is a magnet to put on your fridge to help you remember at the Adult Formation Table in the Commons. Be sure to pick up one... or two... or more!
Again stats show if you ask 5 - at least one will say yes. And you will be doing your part to grow disciples… to share with others what you have found here… a community to call home, to help you celebrate the sacramental moments and to be your parish family.
If you have photos from parish events or ones that capture the sacramental moments we have shared, you can email them to email@example.com, put them in the parish mail slot indicating your name, contact information, if you want the photos back and a brief description of what is in the photo. Forms for this are located on the Adult Formation table in the commons.
