Hopes and Dreams Sessions

St. Gabriel Church members, we are embarking on an exciting long-range planning process, starting with our "Hopes and Dreams Sessions".  Please make time for this important opportunity.  Fr. Richard and our parish leadership want to hear from you.

Thursday, March 12, 9:30 – 11:00 am, in the church Fellowship Hall

At these sessions, we’ll gather ideas and input in a way that works well for a large group. Please bring your smartphone, if you have one. These are not town hall meetings - no Q&A or lining up at microphones. Look for these opportunities at later dates, with smaller group sizes.  

To prepare, please think and pray about these topics. What do you hope for our:

  • Sunday Mass experience?
  • Homilies and music?
  • Faith Formation and spiritual grown opportunities for all ages?
  • Opportunities to serve in the parish and in charitable outreach work?
  • Ways to connect with others?
  • Communications and technology?
  • Clergy and staff?
  • Safety and security?
  • Buildings, facilities, campus, and parking lot?
