A COVID-19 Parish Update - 5/20
An Update from Father Dave:
Dear brothers and sisters of Archangel Gabriel Parish,
I am grateful to Bishop Zubik for the opportunity to reopen our churches. At Archangel Gabriel, we begin with small baptisms, weddings, and funerals, but at a pace set not to overburden the parish with the great expense of sanitization.
We also look forward to celebrating Mass publicly, even if for the foreseeable future only a small number of people may be present. The Bishop expects us to follow the rules laid out by civil and health officials regarding sanitization. At Archangel Gabriel, we're still working to ascertain how best to implement those rules in our three churches, in addition to obtaining all the equipment and supplies needed to keep our churches clean and safe. I am therefore not yet sure how or when we will be able to reopen our churches for private prayer or public Mass.
For now we continue with confessions and perpetual adoration in the parking lot at St. Malachy Church, and then beginning June 1, my plan is to hold Masses in the Holy Trinity Church parking lot until we can reopen one or more of our churches.
- Fr. Dave

Beginning this Saturday at NOON and continuing every day for nine days, Archangel Gabriel Parish will be praying the Novena to the Holy Spirit (via live stream) leading up to the Solemnity of Pentecost and the end of the Easter season.
The Novena to the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the First Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light, strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.
Each day is devoted to an increase in a particular Gift of the Holy Spirit. Each day's video will remain on our Facebook page after the live stream so that you can pray each day's prayer at your convenience.
is granted by the Church to those who participate in this novena.
