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.
Who & How: All school families and families actively participating in our Religious Education program can play sports at St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish.
Sports Masses: 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. 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. 2019-2020 School Year Dates: 9/28, 10/27, 11/24, 1/26/20, 2/23, 3/22 and 4/26.
