Important Notes from the Rectory Office

Posted on September 05, 2019 in: Reminder

  • Mass Stipends - The Bishops in the State of Missouri have increased the Mass stipend from $5 to $10.  As always, Mass Intentions will be accepted regardless of your ability to pay the stipend.

    Please contact the rectory to reserve spaces for your upcoming events and meetings. All reservations are made on a first come—first served basis, so whether your events are held annually or weekly, you will need to contact the Rectory as soon as possible to get on the calendar. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. 
    Please send your requests to Eileen at:

  • Faith Direct
    Enrolling in eGiving through Faith Direct you can plan your giving through the summer so your gifts reach St. Gabriel the Archangel even when you cannot, and our ministries can continue uninterrupted.
    Signing up is easy! Visit and use our church code: MO413
    Thank you for your continued support of our parish family.

  • Update Membership Information
    Does our Church database have YOUR family membership record correct?  Did you DROP your landline phone and only use your cell phone?  Please update your information so the parish has a way to contact you.

Here is your chance to update your record for our annual Guide Book & Directory (if you haven’t already done so). It is time for us to update our database with any changes, additions, or deletions that may have occurred in your family over the past year.
Have you changed your phone number? Have you moved? Are you preparing to move soon? Are all of your children still at home and are they all included in your membership record? Do you want your record published? If you have not already informed the Church Office about changes to your record, please let us know now so that the information in the Guide Book & Directory is correct.
Contact Eileen Garavaglia at or 314‐353‐6303. Thank you for your help!
