Be My Witness

A Christ-centered, Spirit-led approach to creating a vibrant parish culture for encountering Jesus and making disciples, this ministry takes its inspiration from Pope Francis' "The Joy of the Gospel". Be My Witness will be rolled out to the parish in 2020.

FunFest

Our annual old-fashioned carnival features games, inflatables, laser tag, live entertainment and much more! We offer a variety of food including food trucks, a pizza stand, shaved ice, and a delicious meal cooked by the Knights of Columbus. The event is geared toward all age levels and the carnival is fun for the whole family. This is a great opportunity to visit with your fellow parishioners and friends. The FunFest committee works extremely hard year-round to plan and prepare for the annual event. The committee is always looking for more volunteers, the more help the greater this event can be!

Scrip/Gift Cards

Our ministry focuses on fundraising for the St. Gabriel Building Fund by selling scrip in the courtyard after all weekend Masses and during the week in the Parish Office during regular business hours. The cards are sold at face value and a small percentage is returned to the parish for each card sold. We even have parishioners who are small business owners who use our cards for their regular business expenses and thus carry stewardship into their businesses. Our goal is to see all members of the parish become a part of this ministry!
