We invite you to share your life of faith with us.
We believe that we are a gifted, loving and dynamic community, a people of open arms and shared dreams. We have no doubt that our greatest resource is the Spirit of the Lord within us. Together we ask the Holy Spirit to unlock the creative energies of our hearts and to fire a Living Faith among us that the Kingdom of God may be our permanent reality.
The Parish of St. Gabriel has grown over its short 9 plus years from a tiny, parish worshipping at a local school into our present facilities. When we opened our first permanent multipurpose building in 2007, the parish celebrated the beginning of a long held dream and the fruit of the sacrifice and commitment made by so many in the course of faith. We now still hold onto our dream of a permanent church building in our not too distant future. Our welcome to you is designed to make every effort to overcome the difficulties of size and space and to say in a warm and loving way that we want you to belong with us.
We are many ages, coming from many backgrounds and places. It must be our strong faith in the Lord Jesus that draws us together and our real and loving concern for each other that brings faith to life. Our goal is to become living stones that form the House of God. Get acquainted with the many ministries and programs of St. Gabriel’s. They are open to all members; we invite and encourage everyone to participate. Our lives are diverse and often difficult, but at the Eucharistic table we find our center and our challenge.
In 2009 we opened the doors of Annunciation Catholic School ~ the first Catholic grammar school started in the Diocese of Phoenix in almost 10 years, and the only one located north of Loop 101. It is dedicated to serve the families of St. Gabriel, Our Lady of Joy and St. Rose parishes. In the fall of 2013, we will open doors for grades 1 through 8, thanks to the generosity of donors from the three parish area and beyond.
Come visit St. Gabriel’s. Worship with us, share the Scriptures; join us for fun, fellowship, and celebration. Together we will grow in the Lord.
