Clusters are neighborhood-based groups designed to offer parishioners fellowship and fun, through social, spiritual, and outreach activities. All parishioners are a member of a Cluster group based on your address. We have a wonderful group of leaders and co-leaders and are currently looking to fill spots for those clusters without leaders. If your neighborhood cluster does not have a leader, you are always welcome to participate in other clusters’ activities.
For more information about clusters or to see about being a leader or co-leader, contact Denise Murphy at 704.843.9660 or email@example.com.
Our clusters are joining together again to provide the baked goods for the St. Vincent De Paul Society Christmas baskets for low income families.
We need 400 desserts prepared and ready to put in baskets by Friday, December 20. If you have not heard from your cluster leader regarding this and would like to assist with this outreach opportunity, please contact Maggie Baucom at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704.906. 0911. Ideally it would be great if you could go ahead and bake your dessert now and freeze it so it will be ready to pull out in December. Desserts should be delivered to the school cafeteria on Friday, December 20, between 1:00 pm-5:00 pm.
Help St. Gabriel’s Vincent de Paul Society by baking homemade desserts for families of 4-6 people. These desserts need to be wrapped thoroughly in clear plastic, foil or ziplock bags (Ziplock preferred). Items are to be homemade, such as cookies, candies, pies, breads, cakes, brownies, etc. Items should not need refrigeration and should transport well, as they will be on top of the baskets.
Cluster 23 – Annual Home Mass and Dinner! Our annual home Mass is Saturday, November 16 at the home of Rosella and Peter Bergen at 3901 Huckleberry Road, Charlotte, 28210. The 5:30 pm Mass will be celebrated by retired Bishop Curlin, followed by a dinner at the home of Eileen and Jeff Miller at 6901 Brandenburg Ct, Charlotte, 28210, only a few blocks away.
Please RSVP with the number of people in your family attending and if you would like to bring a salad, dessert, or bread as the main course will be provided. Please contact Rosella Bergen at 704.553.2799 or email@example.com, or Eileen Lentz Miller at 704.556.1136 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to a wonderful time for you and your family.
Co-Leaders: Rosella and Peter Bergen, Eileen and Jeff Miller, Michael
Cluster Leaders Needed
Our vibrant parish of 3500 families is divided into clusters so our church members can get to know fellow parishioners
who live in nearby neighborhoods. My name is Denise Murphy and I am the Parish Cluster Coordinator for St. Gabriel. Your Cluster may currently be without a leader and I am reaching out to you to consider this cluster position.
The benefits of our St. Gabriel clusters:
• social activities introduce parishioners to each other
• spiritual programs strength our Catholic faith
• service opportunities help us reach out to families in need
Please contact me if you are interested or have questions. Thank you in advance for your consideration and
I look forward to hearing from you.
Blessings on your cluster,
Denise Murphy at email@example.com
