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.

The Gospel predicts end times; our challenge though is to live faithfully now.  St. Vincent often asked this simple question:  “What would Jesus Christ do, if he were in my place now?

Ask yourself: What would Jesus Christ do?  And then put your gift in the St. Vincent DePaul poor box so that those who are suffering will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving.  God bless you!

THE POWER OF GRANDPARENTS

What are the needs of your family? Work? Health? Safety?

Saturday November 9th we will join together after 4:00 p.m. Mass in the RECTORY to ask the grandparents of Jesus, St’s Ann and Joachim, to answer the needs of our children and grandchildren.  Join us each month for this short time of shared prayer

PRAYER FOR GRANDPARENTS

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.

Amen
