The Gabriel Project of St. Mary's Vacaville Mission Statement:
The Gabriel Project is a Parish-based ministry that provides assistance to women and families facing difficult or crisis pregnancies. The community provides it with love through spiritual, emotional, and material support to help meet those needs. This may include friendship, pastoral care, baby items, education, housing, employment, adoption, and financial assistance.
The Angel Gabriel
In the Gospel of Luke, the Angel Gabriel told Mary the good news that a child would be born and that she was to be the Mother of our Savior. When she asked, “How can this be?” the angel told her not to be afraid for “nothing is impossible with God.” The Gabriel Project announces the same comforting message to you: Fear not, for God is with you! Nothing is impossible with God. You are stronger than your fear, and more powerful than even the most challenging circumstances that you may find yourself in. You will find the courage to make your way through this one. There is hope, life, and joy on the other side of this journey, and though you are strong enough to get there, you don’t have to go alone.
The Gabriel Project is excited to announce the birth of Baby Israel from our Parish. Thanks to the Parish's generous donations we were able to provide the family with much needed baby items. The family is extremely happy with all the gifts. We keep the family in our prayers.
The Gabriel Project is excited to announce the birth of Baby Sean who was born on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. Mom and baby are both doing well. Thanks to the Parish's generous donations, we were able to provide the family with a car seat, stroller, and a basket full of much needed baby items. We were also able to provide Sean’s ten-year-old sister with a new comforter and some clothing items. The family is extremely happy with all the gifts. The family is always in our prayers.
Call 800-910-0191 to get in touch with a Gabriel Project member today for resources and support for yourself and your expected one during and after your pregnancy.
You Are Called
You are called to stand up for life! To respect and defend the mystery of life always and everywhere, including the lives of unborn babies, giving real help and encouragement to mothers in difficult situations. You are called to work and pray against abortion.
