Welcome to the St. Gabriel Athletic Association web site. Another sports year is upon us and the previous year was very successful. This organization dedicates itself to the success of the children of this parish. The SGAA is very proud of them, and all student/athletes who participate in our sports programs.
Fund raisers throughout the year continue to be successful, along with our recently added soccer tournament. Events like these help to keep our athletic fees low and provide funding for our teams to participate in city-wide tournaments throughout the year.
The purpose of this web site is to keep everyone informed on sign-ups for teams, uniform exchange, and updates on teams' performance. Go to the SGAA web pages>>
Boy Scout Troop 4 at St. Gabriel is one of the oldest and most active troops in the St. Louis area. Composed of boys in sixth grade through 18 years old, the troop provides a program that builds character, helps the boys gain responsibility and learn about citizenship and the outdoors. In addition to having a lot of fun, there are experiences and duties in scouting that help the boys mature into conscientious adults. The values that boys develop in Boy Scouts can help guide them through their entire lives.

Every day from 9:00 pm until 5:00 am, adorers come to the Church to pray before the Blessed Sacrament. In the late 1940s, as they had made their parish the physical centerpiece of their community, the parishioners were also determined to make the church their spiritual center—a place of continual prayer. They vowed that their beautiful new church would never be empty.
