Theme: Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy

Pope Francis has declared this year as the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. So we are using this as our theme for Catholic Schools Week. Students are already reflecting on what this means in their families, school, and world. Join us as we give thanks to God for our St. Gabriel Community and especially you--our families!

See you tomorrow!!
