"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself."
-- Luke 10:27
The PFA is organized for the purpose of 1) supporting the faith development and religious growth of the students in the school 2) promoting communication among the parents, teachers, and administration; 3) providing parents with the information to aid in education, growth, and development of their children; and 4) supporting St. Gabriel the Archangel through hospitality, fundraising, social events, and volunteer activities.
This is achieved throughout the year with:
• Educational speaker bureaus
• Classroom parties and volunteer opportunities
• Meet and Greet events
• Annual Auction fundraiser

• School-sponsored events
• Community activities and more.
Information regarding upcoming events is generally shared utilizing the school-wide email e-blast system before the events. Events will also be published, when appropriate, in the parish bulletin.
