All parishioners are invited to join the St. Gabriel Adoration Society and spend at least one hour a month in church in prayer. All levels of commitment are welcome. Taking advantage of the gift of adoration is one of the best ways to draw closer to God. A holy hour is simply spending time in the presence of God. It's not a project to be accomplished but an exercise of love. You can read the bible or a spiritual book, say the Rosary, or just rest with the Lord. For a list of times available or for more details, call Veda Jeggle at 752-3109 or email Mary Beth Wolf at marybethluna@hotmail.com

We have received numerous phone calls from parishioners who have received emails or text messages that appear to be from Msgr. Shamleffer or other rectory staff requesting you to contact them and possibly to purchase gift cards.  Please be aware that these requests are coming from scammers. The scammers create an email account using our pastor’s name and sending email or text messages. Priests, pastors, rectory and school staff will never email or text parishioners looking for gift cards and would never send a business email from a private account such as @aol.com or @gmail.com
