Welcome to St. Gabriel’s Parish as we celebrate REVIVAL 2018.
Our Presiding Bishop The Most Rev. Michael Curry, continues to remind us that we are all part of the Jesus Movement. This allows us to be partakers of an Evangelistic Crusade within the Episcopal Church. The period of Revival calls to mind this mandate given to us by the Presiding Bishop.
Every year we at St. Gabriel’s, celebrate a Revival at the end ofSeptember. In some other jurisdictions, this time is celebrated as Patronal Festival or Feast of Title celebrations. It is normally a week of Revival Services when we celebrate God’s love with the community. Persons areinvited to witness to God in word as they proclaim the message of salvation throughout the week.
This year 2018 we are pleased to welcome The Rev. Beverley Sealy Knight, Rector of St. James Parish Church, Barbados as our Missioner during our week of Revival 2018.
Our theme is the ‘’Five Marks of Mission’’ as we continue to beevangelists in this modern era.
Please join us through the week as we celebrate the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. The week culminates with our outdoor procession of witness and International Day ceremonies. This includes a 10am celebration of the Mass followed by our cultural diversity in the culinary arts.
This year too, it is Father Eddie’s last celebration with us and the day ends with a 4pm service of Leave-Taking. Please join us throughout the week as we move Jesus forward.
Happy Revival 2018
