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.

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
