A Message from Msgr. Shamleffer
My Dear Parishioners: We have begun this Holy Week, while like no other Holy Week in our existence, it can and hopefully will be a graced time.  My call, your call, is to grow in Holiness (oneness with our God), this is more than an ethereal idea but is rooted in a daily lived experience of sharing of life and love with others. While we cannot gather physically in Church for prayer, our Church is not closed for we are the Church, we are the daughters and sons of our Lord, we are one. I personally am taking this time to reflect and remember; to remember what love ...

During this time without Mass consider making an Act of Spiritual Communion, where we unite ourselves to God through prayer. It is a beautiful way to express to God our desire to be united with him when we are unable to complete that union in the reception of Holy Communion. The ultimate goal of our lives should be communion with God and an act of spiritual communion can help a person draw closer to that goal. My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come a...

The parish Food For Life collection for April will be handled a little differently due to the suspension of all public Masses in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  We will have baskets in the back of church throughout the week for folks to drop off their donations whenever convenient.

It is particularly a tough time for the poor. They have little resources to fall back on. The pantries are struggling too with many h...

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

On the weekend of Oct. 26 and 27, Khader & Mary Abu Sada a Catholic couple from the Holy Land will be visiting our parish to market olive wood hand carved religious articles made by the Christian artisans in the Holy Land.  With the hostilities worsening in the Holy Land and the lack of Christian pilgrims, the outlets for the olive wood hand-carvings have been closed, leading unemployment to increase up to 75%, and forcing many Christians to leave the Holy Land in order to find other ways to market their handiwork. But the absence of a living Christian community is disastrous for the Holy sites, such ...

Calling All Musicians!

Posted on September 19, 2019 in: Parish-wide Announcements

The St. Gabriel Parish Choir sings each Sunday at the 11:00 Mass, and rehearses each Wednesday evening from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.  We are always in need of a few more tenors and basses, especially.  Musical reading is definitely a plus, but many quick learners with good ears do very well and learn some basic reading skills along the way.  We sing a wide variety of music from all musical eras, plus we always pray twice with our singing!  The St. Gabriel Young Adult Choir sings about three times each month, rotating mostly between the 9:00 and 11:00 Masses.  These talented young adults rehearse from 4...

Hello St. Gabriel Family,           My name is Fr.
