This is what you are looking for

Like most of you who landed in this page, I was looking for the webpage of the Saint Gabriel Parish. Was running late one night and wanted to confirm the last Mass schedule because a delayed mass the previous week got me a bit confused. Googled for the schedule and telephone numbers but found none. Missed mass that time.

Will try to post information here related to our parish. Maybe other parishioners can do the same. Am actually crossing my fingers that the students and graduates of Saint Gabriel Academy can help collect information about Saint Gabriel, our church and the community.

We can all use this as a temporary page for important announcements as we help plan and create a complete website.

Thanks. God Bless!

9-hour Novena to the Infant Jesus of Prague

Last month, I found at home a prayerbook that I cannot recall where I got from. Its the Novena to the Infant Jesus of Prague.

I am still in a state of amazement how many small requests were answered immediately. It has been a source of strength for me that I don't anymore count how many I have said. It is just automatic by the turn of the hour that I will look at the clock to confirm the time, and quickly pray when I can push aside work for a couple of minutes.

Let me just share with you the prayer.

Mass schedule at the Shrine of the Mother of Perpetual Help

Mama Gloria Bernardo and I regularly go to the Shrine of the Mother of Perpetual Help (also known as Redemptorist Church and Baclaran Church) to hear Wednesday Mass and pray the Novena. Sometimes, we will miss the 5:30am schedule...and getting the next available schedule would require googling the internet.

Though this is not Saint Gabriel related, would post the schedule here for those who frequent the Shrine.

Church Trip: Chapel of the Eucharistic Lord

I had a meeting at SM Megamall the other day when I saw the Chapel of the Eucharistic Lord...and thought of "checking in". Was taking pictures when the noon Mass started. So I just decided to stay for a full hour.

The homily was about a wedding where many people were invited as guests. One came not in his best wedding attire. The host was insulted and ordered the guest be thrown out.

Everyday, we are invited to be with Him. Out of respect and gratitude, we come prepared, in our very best...only the best.
