October 15 - St. Gabriel Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Good Help Shrine
We encourage all parishioners—children, parents, families, and seniors—to join us for our next pilgrimage to Our Lady of Good Help Shrine in Champion, WI, on Saturday, October 15th.
Because this pilgrimage is in collaboration with several parishes, including St. Kilian, St. Peter, St. Theresa of Calcutta, and St. Mary of the Hill, a registration deadline has been set for September 30th.
The cost for the motor coach and a catered lunch is $50.00 per person; please make checks out to St. Gabriel Parish.
There are several options to register:
- Call or email Gerry Wolf at the parish office: 262-628-1141, ext. 223; [email protected]
- Stop after any weekend Mass in September to sign up in person with members of the Men’s Group who will be available to answer questions or provide information about the pilgrimage and/or the shrine.
The motor coach will depart from a central meeting point (still to be determined) at 7:30 am and return to that location between 5:30-6:00 pm. While at the Shrine, our group will have the opportunity for Confessions, Mass, Consecration to Mary, Rosary Walk, and more...
Please register as soon as possible.
Our Lady of Good Help, pray for us!

God’s Pursuit of His People
Adult Ministry and Formation seek to fulfill the vision of St. Gabriel by you asking you to be a disciple in Jesus Christ, through the Sacramental life of the Church! "God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life.
For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life."(Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Our response is to enter into the great Plan of God. We are called to come into this beautiful friendship with God, here on earth and forever in heaven. Adult Formation, in light of God's goodness and goodwill, offers opportunities to answer the deepest questions we all have, strengthen faith, encourage conversion of heart, and to share the good news of Jesus with others.
We continue to understand this plan is fulfilled in and through the Church, the Body of Christ. We are not meant for growth in faith alone, as we commune with God and His people.
Please answer the deepest longing of your heart by joining us at Mass, in Scripture study, discipleship groups, and more.
