(UPDATED 4/3/20)During this time of uncertainty, and in an effort to support the Bishop's call for us to take this time to develop a deeper relationship with the Lord, St. Gabriel's Community is offering the following.
After reviewing the usage of the building and those accessing the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and in keeping with the guidelines established by the governor and the Diocese of Richmond, we are making the following changes:
Holy Week Hours:
The tabernacle has been placed in the worship space and the church building is open for prayer and devotions. Note: we are limiting access to 10 people at a time so please be prepared to wait your turn if needed.
Palm Sunday - 10 a.m. - Noon
Monday - Wednesday from 9 a.m. – Noon
Holy Thursday - Holy Saturday, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Easter Sunday, 10 a.m. - Noon
