      “People will forget what you said,
     people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget
how you made them feel.”

We are pleased to announce to all St. Gabriel Parishioners, the formation of a new youth group for our 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  This is an initiative of our Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference at St. Gabriel.

Our Mission

Inspired by Gospel values, CLUB 876, a Young Vincentian Group within the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, is a lay organization that leads middle school students within the St. Gabriel the Archangel parish boundaries to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

Our Objectives include:

  • Spiritual development
  • Compassion for the poor
  • Outreach to those in need
  • Effective communication
  • Organizational sustainability

Our Ministries and our adult leaders include: 

Spirituality Susie & Tom Campbell
Charity Lynn Wolf & Dan Sise
Outreach Amy Kidwell & Paula Crews
Communication Julie Sturma & Denny Heinze
Leadership Steve Polk & Bob Wagner


Our regular meetings will be held on the second Sunday of each month at 7:00 pm in Gabriel House.

One of the hallmarks of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is our person-to-person approach to our charitable work.  Like Pope Francis, St. Vincent de Paul believed in going to the people who need our help and ministering to them in their environment.  We plan to make this a key aspect of our work with CLUB 876.  We hope this introduction provides you with enough information to encourage any middle schooler(s) in your family to give CLUB 876 a try.
