A Message About The Feast of the Assumption

August 15, 2020

Important Information

about back to school backpacks

This year due to COVID 19 St. Gabriel Conference will not be collecting back to school backpacks and supplies.  Please do not drop off andy backpacks etc. to the office.  Instead of risking anyone’s health entering stores to purchase or deliver supplies SVdP will mak and monetary donation directly to the Broward County Drive.  Please make your checks payable to  St. Gabriel Conference SVdP and write school supplies in the memo line. Mail checks to St. Gabriel Conference/SVdP 731 N. Ocean Blvd. Pompano Bch., 33062 

Our Vincentian rule forbids Conferences from contributing monies directly to another charity but encourages us as individuals to support other important works when appropriate.  These are very different times and calls for some different approaches to our works.  To find out more about this County-wide effort check out www.csbroward.org/BTSE  If you have any questions please call Mike Moriarty 954-621-6027


We ask you for your financial support of the Seminary Burse Fund of the Archdiocese of Miami, which directly provides for the information of those whom God is calling to the priesthood.  This collection will be taken Sunday, August 9, 2020 at all the Masses.

Your contribution to the annual Seminary Burse Fund collection helps to ensure that the seminarians of today receive the best formation possible.  As you know, the priest is essential for the celebration of the Eucharist for only he can make the Lord present on our altars.  The priest is also essential in absolving our sins in the sacrament of reconciliation.  The priest represents Christ to us in so many important occasions – baptism, confirmation, weddings and funerals.  This makes your support to the education and formation of future priests so very important.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Prayer For vocations

God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as priests, deacons, religious, and consecrated persons. 

Send your Holy Spirit to help us respond generously and courageously to your call. 

May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. 

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. 



O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children.

The Sea of Galilee obeyed Your order and returned to its former quietude.

You are still the Master of the land and sea.  We live in the shadow of danger over which we have no control: the Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster.

During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father.  Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time.

O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our beloved Mother, we ask to plead with your Son on our behalf so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm less eternity awaits.



Star of the Sea shine brightly down

Upon our sailor men

Guide them to victory  and sagely home again.

When sholdiers battle on the field

When they in trenches go,

Oh Mary lovely Queen of Peace

Protect them from the foe.

Oh help of Morining Christian star

Guide them with your saving rays

The skyways where our pilots are

In flight by night and day

Oh Mary lovely Queen of Peace

Sweet Mother of God’s Son

Grant that the world wide war may cease

And freedoms cause can be won.


Military honor Roll

At long last, the Men’s Club is moving ahead with its plans for the Military Honor Roll. The formal Dedication Ceremony will take place on August 15, 2020, after the 4 PM Mass and August 16, 2020, after the 11 AM Mass.

Prayer to Accept God’s Will

Lord Jesus, in Your agony You uttered the prayer, “Not My will, but Yours be done”.  Help me to resign myself to the Father’s will with such humility and love.  Grant that I may perceive the things that I can change in my life; give me the help to accept those things I cannot change.

I know You will permit only that which will lead to my salvation and that of others.  Help me to accept with a joyful and humble heart the good things You send.  Help me to accept too, the cross which I must bear in union with You.  I as this, Lord, in Your name.  Amen.

St Gabriel Catholic Church

A Vibrant Faith Community in Christ

Parish History

Established in 1967, Saint Gabriel serves the faith and spiritual needs of the Catholic community in Pompano Beach and Hillsboro Beach.

St. Gabriel Beginnings

Through hard work, sacrifice, and dedication, parishioners constructed a rectory and a church with an elegant blue tile roof and ceramic doors made by two California aunts of Father Thomas Goggin, the first pastor. Parishioners also established a religious education program.

St. Gabriel Today

The tile roof remains but the harsh sea and salty air took their toll on the original doors.  In 2017, the doors were replaced with the beautiful doors you see today.

The parish may be South Florida’s first to initiate a Parish Nurse/Health program in conjunction with Holy Cross Hospital, to serve the frail elderly.

Situated in the heart of Pompano Beach on A1A, just across the street from the beach, St Gabriel’s community is a blend of cultures, ages, and ethnicities.

St Gabriel is blessed to serve as a vibrant year-round parish for about a 1,000 families, which swells during “season” when we welcome our seasonal parishioners home.

Saint Gabriel’s spiritual life is embodied in prayer and our community outreach. St Gabriel offers parishioners many opportunities to participate in parish life – Bible study, prayer groups, Saint Vincent de Paul Society, Respect Life, the frail elderly, and many others.

Lord Jesus, you were born of the Virgin Mary,

The daughter of Saints Joachim and Anne.

Look with love on grandparents the world over.

For families for the Church and for all of society.

Support them!  As they grow older,

May they continue to be for their families

Strong pillars of Gospel faith, guardians of noble

Domestic ideals, living treasures of sound religious,

Traditions.  Make them teachers of wisdom and courage,

That they may pass on to future generations the fruits

Of their mature human and spiritual experience.

Lord Jesus, help families and society

To value the presence and role of grandparents.

May they never be ignored or excluded

But always encounter respect and love.

Help them to live serenely and to feel welcomed

In all the years of life which you give them.

Mary, Mother of all the living keep grandparents

Constantly in your care, accompany them on their

Earthly pilgrimage and by your prayers, grant

That all families may one day be reunited in our heavenly

Homeland where you await all humanity for the

Great embrace  of life without end.
