Greetings From Father Tony & Thoughts from Father Nathan on Prayer

NATIONAL BLACK AND INDIAN MISSION COLLECTION | July 12

Over the past 135 years, the Catholic community in America has always reached out with generous hearts and giving hands to the annual National Black and Indian Mission collection. Your generous contributions assist these special missions in our own country. The Catechism of the Catholic Church beautifully teaches us that the Lords’ missionary mandate is grounded in the eternal love of the Most Holy Trinity. The Church on earth is by her nature missionary since, according to the plan of the Father, she has as her origin the mission of the Son and the Holy Spirit. The ultimate purpose of the mission is none other than to make all people share in the communion between the Father and the Son in their Spirit of Love. Many Churches and schools in the Native and African American communities depend on the annual evangelization grants to continue their programs and pastoral activities. Together, we can make a difference in the faith lives of our Black and Indian brothers and sisters when we support the national collection. Furthermore, the collection promotes a sense of solidarity with many priests, religious, deacons, and laity who serve these communities The collection will be taken at all the Masses next weekend July 12th. Please drop your donation in the baskets located in the church or donate online.

PRAYER FOR OUR SERVICEMEN and Women

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.

Amen

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.

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
