In these times, we must keep the faith. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our parishioners, staff, volunteers and students. With this in mind, we have taken additional steps to make every visit as safe as possible. We commit to ensuring that our operations and actions comply with the social distancing guidelines as instructed through the Archdiocese of Louisville, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the Federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) and OSHA.
After all, we are all in this together! We have a social contract to work together to stop the spread of illness.
Healthy On Campus
We have formed a Heathy on Campus Committee (HOCC), chaired by our Facilities Manager Mark LaPierre, to oversee the interpretation of COVID-related guidelines, to create and monitor health and safety initiatives, to recommend enhancements, and to ensure compliance. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns. Contact HOCC Chair and Facilities Manager Mark LaPierre at 502-523-9728 if you have additional questions.
In these times, we must keep the faith.
These events can be seen on the St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish Facebook Page, both live and recorded. Watch any Mass, Prayer or Briefing on our YouTube Channel: St. Gabriel Fern Creek
