A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
Entering the Holiest of Weeks …
Since the beginning of Lent until now we have been preparing our hearts and souls in growing in our faith and our spirituality. Through special prayers and worship activities such as our Stations of the Cross celebrations and our sacramental Reconciliation, through our daily personal sacrifice commitments to give up pleasures and vices, and through our giving to others such as our special all school collections for Birthright and Food Pantry, we have been being Christ every day, everywhere.
We now join the entire Catholic Community of St. Gabriel Parish in Holy Week, to gather together to herald the beginning of the celebrations of our Jesus’ Paschal Mystery, his Passion, Death and Resurrection, for our salvation. We enter most deeply into this foundation of our Christian faith as we plunge by memory and ritual into this mystery that reveals and defines the meaning of Jesus’ existence and of our own.
We begin this Palm Sunday, joining our parish family to commemorate Jesus entering his own city of Jerusalem to accomplish this mystery. On Wednesday, all students in the school will gather in church for our traditional and very special prayer service with music, student liturgical dance, and a final living student enactment of the Stations of the Cross.
As we leave at the end of the school day Wednesday, we invite and encourage all to continue to join our St. Gabriel Parish Community in Wednesday’s Tenebrae Service, and then the Triduum of Holy Thursday’s Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, Good Friday’s afternoon celebration of the Lords’s Passion, and Saturday’s Easter Vigil and Sunday’s Easter celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection!
In this holy and sacred week, may you join with the St. Gabriel School Community in experiencing the joy of Jesus’ saving death and resurrection, giving us the grace, courage and love to continue anew being Christ, every day, everywhere!
Peace and blessings, hope and courage in Christ,
Mrs. Saladino, Principal
