Mission Statement

We the members of St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Mother Parish faith community believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and head of our Church.
We accept His commission to love and serve God through prayer, study and celebration of the sacraments, especially Eucharist.
We accept His will to love our neighbor as ourselves through acts of charity, gracious stewardship of our gifts and talents, and welcoming the stranger.
We strive to imitate the example of our patron, St. Gabriel, who vowed each day to act in the most perfect way possible, desiring never to have even the smallest part of sin enter his soul.
We call upon the Holy Spirit to inspire us to be witnesses of gospel joy in a world of fragile peace and broken promises so that we may one day enter the home of the heavenly Father.
