About St. Gabriel
All of us at St. Gabriel are glad and feel blessed that you have taken a look at our parish community. We take great pride in living our lives according to the Gospel of Mercy proclaimed by Jesus Christ. As He welcomed all to journey with Him, so do we. As Pastor, I would like to invite you on a journey of faith with our community.
Let me tell you a little about this community. We are a community nestled within the southern Clay county region of Kansas City. We are made up of people, young and old, from all walks of life, coming from many different ethnic backgrounds. Some of us remember the first days of the parish (yes it began in a roller rink) and some are taking a first look. We have a beautiful school where kids from ages 2 to14 learn, grow and discover the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. We celebrate Mass. We sing. We serve. We reach out to our neighbors in need. We’ll greet you as a neighbor and a friend and find a place where you can serve as well.
St. Gabriel is a small parish. We pray, work and serve together with the help of God’s Holy Spirit. But we still have a long way to go. No church is perfect. We are all “companions on the journey of faith.” I’d like to invite you to discover the spirit of St. Gabriel for yourselves. Come and journey with us. You’ll find a home here.
Fr. Alex Kreidler, Pastor
