  • We are once again partnering with Pitt County Social Services to help bring Christmas gifts to less fortunate in our community. There are two groups of cards on the Giving Tree: elderly individuals with no family to look after them, and families identified by St. Gabriel’s to be in need of food assistance. Please have your gifts for Social Services back to the parish by Sunday, December 14th. Food cards should be returned no later than December 22nd. A box will be placed in the Atrium for the collection of these items. Your generosity in years past has been overwhelming, so let us continue that tradition this year!
  • On Thursday mornings at 10am, Fr. Leon will host an hour long Bible Study Session in Classroom 1. Each session will go over the readings and gospel from the preceding Sunday's Mass. There is no sign-up or cost for these sessions, simply show up and bring your own bible The next meeting will be on Thursday, December 4th.
  • Calling all young musicians! The music ministry is starting a Youth Choir that will sing at the 9:30 Sunday Mass once a month! Interested participants should be in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Rehearsals will be on Friday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. We will begin singing by the First Sunday of Advent and join with the Adult Choir for the Christmas Eve Mass. If you are interested in joining, please contact Karen Rainey.
