Welcome to St. Gabe's! We are a vibrant, welcoming, community of faith, feeding the hearts, minds, and spirits of all who come. We hope you will join us throughout our site as we host information about the warmth of our parish community. St. Gabe's is our spiritual home and offers a true sense of family to all of our members. While we are reverent in our faith, we are relaxed, comfortable, and spiritually refreshing in our relationships with one another. One of St. Gabriel's greatest blessings is found in its people. We love to eat together, pray together, and serve together both within our parish and within our Outreach Ministries. If you are a first time visitor, be our guest at a service or simply get to know us on our website. If you are already a parishioner, we thank you for being a cherished part of creating what we call "home."
