Even as we enjoy beautiful fall weather and the dazzling foliage on our trees, we also know that soon the leaves will fall, and the so will the temperature, and our beautiful corner of the world will fade to black and white. As people of Faith, we know that this gray season is a time of unseen preparation for the return of the light in all its glorious color.
As you prepare your homes, cars, and selves, for the coming winter, I ask you to please be generous to our annual appeal, which provides the means for your parish to care for and prepare for the many uses at St. Gabriel. I hope you’ve noticed the landscaping work around the church and the rectory–that’s just a small part of the improvements your generosity allows us to make.
Thank you to the many parishioners who have already made their annual gift.
If you haven’t had the chance to make your gift yet, please make it this week – it is very much needed and greatly appreciated.
