St .Gabriel Welcomes Father Nathan

Pastor:  Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

In June we said goodbye to Father Liam Quinn, who decided to retire and focus more effort on his missionary outreach in Dominican Republic.

And we welcomed our new Pastor Father Sahayanathan Nathan to our parish.  Father Nathan comes to us from St Agatha’s in Miami.  Father Nathan sent us a beautiful letter when he received the news of his new assignment.  Read it here.

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. 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 Groggin, the first pastor. Parishioners also established a religious education program.

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.

SEMINARY BURSE FUND COLLECTION

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 TODAY Sunday, August 11th 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.

SCHOOL SUPPLY COLLECTION | August 3rd – August 17th
