Come This Sunday to Welcome Bishop Goff!
I realize that the summer may not be an ideal time for a Bishop’s visit, but congregations don’t have the choice to determine when the Bishop is to visit. It is also our holy obligation to show our presence, love, and hospitality to Bishop Susan Goff this Sunday!
Please come to church and say "Thank you!" to Bishop Susan for all of the support St. Gabriel's receives from the Diocese of Virginia. One third of our annual budget ($75,000) comes from the Committee on Congregational Missions of the Diocese. We requested $70,000 and were granted $75,000 because the diocesan leaders believe that Saint Gabriel’s~San Gabriel is living into its authentically inclusive mission, which is vitally important to the Church. Without diocesan support, we would not be here!
Now is the time to share why St. Gabriel’s is important to you and to your family. Take a minute and share your personal stories with her as a Saint Gabrielite, what you love about your church, what Shrine Mont means to you, and what you would like to see improve. This visit is also important because we will not have another Bishop's visitation for two years.
Unless you are out of town, please come! Let’s show Bishop Susan and our Diocese the hospitality they deserve and be witnesses of Saint Gabriel’s love, vitality, and gratitude!
Saint Gabriel's is a mission church in Leesburg, VA that was planted in 2002. Through prayer and action we live into our holy mission to "Encounter God, build meaningful relationships, and make a difference in the world" by offering inspiring worship, faith-building discipleship, warm fellowship, hearfelt pastoral care, active evangelism, outreach, and service to all.
We are a hospitable and inclusive faith community open to people at any stage in their faith journey with Christ. You are welcome just as God made you! When you worship with us feel free to dress up or dress down - God doesn't care what you wear, nor do we!
We invite you to help us continue building the kingdom of God in Leesburg, VA through prayer, love, commitment to God and to community, joyful worship, and Christian service!
Blessings and peace,
The Rev. Daniel Vélez-Rivera, Vicar
