Mission & Philosophy
The St. Gabriel Sports Ministry Program’s mission and philosophy states that our program must operate at all levels with common courtesy, patience, pride, and respect. Our coaches, parents, and administrators should act as educators and transmitters of Catholic values. The goal of the St. Gabriel Sports Ministry program is to inter-mingle sportsmanship and Catholicism so that our children come away with a heightened sense of themselves as people who can strive for great things.
All school families and families actively participating in our Religious Education program can play sports at St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish.
During the school year, we hold monthly Sports Masses to honor our student-athletes and to encourage them to participate in weekend worship with the parish community. Athletes and their families are asked to serve in our mass as lectors, gift bearers, ushers and Eucharistic Ministers.
- Student-athletes are encouraged to wear their uniform.
- After Mass, student-athletes are asked to stay for a photo shoot with our clergy on the altar. After mass, the Knights of Columbus typically provide breakfast and we have been honoring our 8th grade athletes for the current sports.
Online Sports Registration
We register for all sports online. As part of the Louisville Catholic School Athletics Association, we use CSAA Gameday as our primary means of online sports registration. All parents should create an account on Gameday to receive communications regarding sports registrations, deadlines and in season game play information.
