April 24, 2018

IHM SISTERS TO LEAVE GRAYS FERRY!  HOW CAN I SAY THANK YOU ?

As many of you know, the Sisters, Servants of IHM have recently announced their plans to withdraw from St. Gabriel Convent in June.  The IHMs have lived within the St. Gabriel Parish for the past 110 years serving countless parishioners, parents, teachers, staff and children and we are eternally grateful for their dedication and ministry.

The 10 o’clock Mass on Sunday, May 20th will be a Mass of Thanksgiving in honor of the IHM sisters for their 110 years of dedication to Saint Gabriel. Sisters who served at St. Gabriel or who entered from St. Gabriel Parish are being invited. A reception with light refreshments will follow in the school hall.   Spread the word. Save the date.  Come and Thank the IHM’s.

If you have ever walked into the doors of St. Gabe’s School and have experienced the exceptionally warm and welcoming culture and the love and care present across the entire St. Gabe’s community, then you know something of the legacy that the IHM sisters have built.

Help us to honor the IHM sisters by keeping the memory of their legacy alive for generations to come! We all have a story to tell, a favorite memory to share. Please share your memory and photos here:  https://stgabrielphila.independencemissionschools.org/support/remember-when/

You can even make a gift in memory or in honor of the IHM’s or your favorite Sister!   You gift will ensure that more memories will be created in the halls of St. Gabriel’s for many years to come.
