After three years of prayer and listening events with thousands of participants, small group meetings, video series, and a Synod Assembly with nearly 500 voting delegates, Archbishop Bernard Hebda released on “Christ the King” weekend

(November 19-20, 2022) his first pastoral letter. 

Entitled, You Will Be My Witnesses: Gathered and Sent from the Upper Room, the document is accessible and inspiring, and well lays out Archbishop Hebda’s vision for a new model to renew this local Church.

Year 1 Implementation Plan


St. Gabriel's Synod Evangelization Team

St. Gabriel's Synod Evangelization Team was formally commissioned by Fr. Paul at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, July 16th to assist in the implementation of the Synod priorities at our parish. Leading up to this commissioning, they participated in a formation program last Lent called, "The School of Discipleship." This program was led by Jeff Cavins for all parish Synod Evangelization Teams of the Archdiocese.
