Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

With the recent announcement of the "Stay-at-Home" order for Colorado, our parish will be changing our operating procedures. During the period of March 26th through April 11th, our staff will be working remotely and will be available during our normal office hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.  Please call our main phone line at 719-528-8407, or email any staff member, and we will continue to assist you in any way that we can! Contact information can be found on our website at www.saintgabriel.net.

Also, in a sense taking advantage of these next few weeks of “quarantine,” construction work related to our parish building project will be occurring in our nave and sanctuary. For this reason, our facilities will not be accessible to the public during this time.
