Eternal Father, We are St. Gabriel Parish, announcing the Good News through our worship, formation, ministry, and mission to the world. In this our Jubilee Year, we thank You for all the blessings we have received over the past 25 years of our existence. We thank You for the lives of all those who have helped build this community of love and are now resting in You. May you have mercy on their souls. We also thank You for the gifts of all the people we meet today and ask for Your continued blessings as we embrace our love for You and for one another. May Your Holy Spirit enlighten and strengthen us to be living examples of what we believe and proclaim, by being the hearts of all peoples and share the joy of the Eucharist in our homes, communities, country and the entire universe. We ask this through Your Son, Jesus Christ, with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and our patron, St. Gabriel. Amen.
