St. Gabriel Church Lenten Mission with Fr. Richard Sutter

Monday - Thursday, March 16-19, ONLINE

Welcome to our "virtual" Lenten Mission!   Each evening this Monday through Thursday, we will share a message from Fr. Richard Sutter, reflection questions to help you connect more personally to the message, and praise and worship music.   Use the music to begin or end your prayer time. 

May God bless us as we climb his holy mountain together, drawing on the strength and peace of our faith in these unsettled times.
