Introducing Gabriel

By Danielle Merritt-Sunseri, Ministry Co-Leader

The Angel Gabriel is a messenger: “Rejoice!  Fear Not!”  He not only delivers the message, but becomes an advocate and friend to Mary.  He offers her encouragement and reassurance.  He testifies to the community that Mary deserves their love and protection and communicates her needs.

Gabriel Project is a ministry in which parishioners offer support to women who are experiencing an unexpected or crisis pregnancy.  Support may be in the form of friendship or guidance to secure medical care, housing, food, or material needs.  The ministry acts as a safety net, assuring the expectant mother and child that they will be loved and cared for.  Our parish is excited to announce the formation of the Gabriel Project ministry!

The key to the Gabriel Project is a community response.  As our St. Francis Gabriel Project ministry works with its first client, we invite the parish to join our efforts.  We are organizing a baby shower for a mom, who is expecting to deliver her baby in August.  She is a beautiful young woman and a determined college student with a dedicated family supporting her and a great faith in God.  If you would like to help plan her shower, receive a copy of her wish list, or become part of the Gabriel Project ministry, please email Kip at kiplyne.moffett@gmail.com or Danielle at drsinpa@yahoo.com
