Cursillo, is a Spanish word meaning ‘a short course’.
Cursillo is a movement within the church intended to help Christians know God’s love and grace to help them discover and live out their personal vocation in the world. In the Cursillo Movement we approach evangelization as a very natural act of being Christ-like within each of our daily activities.
For more information, please reach out to Mrs. Audrey Cox and Mr. Noel Browne.
Dorcas League of St. Gabriel’s
“Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and alms deeds which she did.”
A Dorcas Society is a local group of people usually based in a church, with a mission of providing clothing to the poor. At St. Gabriel’s however, we formed a Dorcas League, a charitable group with a different mission.
The Dorcas League of St. Gabriel’s was established more than a decade ago. It is a ‘savings’ group of parishioners and friends who are members of a ‘SU – SU’ or ‘MEETING TURN’. Well known in many Caribbean and Central American territories, this method of saving money provides for and benefits individuals and groups.
The mission of our Dorcas League is charitable giving. Our group uses the benefits of savings for good works and charitable giving as did Dorcas. Each participant as he or she saves, gives proportionately to the church as well.
Our major goal at present is to provide a stained-glass window in our sanctuary, depicting Dorcas and entitled ‘charity’.
Our present coordinator is Ms. Fernella Allen.
Episcopal Church Women (ECW)
The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Gabriel’s is affiliated to the National Episcopal Church Women, a Christian women’s group dedicated to improving the lives of all women and girls throughout the world.
Join us in celebrating women through fellowship. Corporate worship is held every second Sunday of the month after the 11:00 AM service. New members are always welcome.

Girls’ Friendly Society (GFS)
Girls’ Friendly Society (GFS) provides ministry to girls between the ages of 5 and 21, in a safe and accepting environment where Christ’s love is evident. GFS-USA is a faith-based community within the Episcopal Church and a member of the World Council of GFS.
Through local GFS branches such as ours at St. Gabriel’s, together with the GFS-USA Month of Service, and GFS World Projects, we strive to respond to human need by serving others. The organization seeks to transform unjust structures of society, particularly for women and children.
Meetings are held in St. Gabriel’s Parish House on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
