Jesus Christ acts through the Sacraments He instituted to communicate His grace. The sacraments are perceptible signs (words and actions) accessible to our human nature. 

So God gives his Divine life to us as Catholic Christians through the sacramental life of the Church. In each Sacrament, Christ is present with us in every stage and condition of life. 

This is why our Mission at St. Gabriel’s is to Proclaim Christ and make disciples through the Sacramental life of the Church. We really believe that each Sacrament is an encounter with the living God. The effect is that our lives are as Jesus desired:  I have come that you may have life and life to the full (John 10:10) and as St. Paul declared. . .in Him we live and move and exist (Acts 17:28).
