A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love, blessings, and prayers to you all.
Meet our New Maintenance Man + surveillance camera project update
We have a new maintenance man here at the parish. He is still on his orientation and acclimating day by day. His name is Rodger. He is being taught all the necessary things about the church and its ministries. He recently moved here with his mother to join his father and family from Cuba.
He is learning English feel free to speak with him and assist him with your Spanish. He is a hard-working person. Since he is learning English, please use Google Translate in case you need anything from him or please let the office or me know and we will take care of it. There are members of the parish assisting him in all the ways possible for his settlement.
On another note, the surveillance camera project is completed. I am so happy and believe this will be of great support for our 24-hour security.
We know, the Thanksgiving time of year at hand. Our St. Vincent DePaul is organizing the Thanksgiving Luncheon. If you have or know some of your family and friends, homebound, sick, and lonely, please bring them with you to the lunch sign-up sheet located in the back of the church.
We believe this would bring a sense of home and family—that is the purpose of having this meal.
Returning Seasonal Parishioners
These days, I am seeing a lot of our winter parishioners and visitors back at Mass and around the parish. We all welcome them back to their Florida home and parish. Everyone should feel at home and the warmth of our St. Gabriel family. For visitors to our church, everything is new to them, so everyone greets one another and shares our blessings! One smile, a word of welcome, or a wave would mark a great in their life.
Please do so.
God bless you all.
With lots of love and blessing.
Ever wanting to be faithful to your service.
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan
