Please Join Us for Worship Sundays at 8:00 am and 10:00 am

St. Gabriel is following the state of Oregon guidelines for social distancing to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Although our building is closed, our church is and will always be open. Starting Sunday, March 22, 2020 we started holding our services via Zoom video conference. From the isolation of our homes our joyous community came together in laughter, song, and prayer. We will continue to hold our 8:00 and 10:00 am Sunday services, our 9:30 am Sunday church school, our 9:30 am Wednesday healing service, and our scripture reading groups by Zoom video conference throughout this crisis. To join us, please call our church office at 503-645-0744 or contact us by email. We would love for you to visit or join our community!

Welcome from Canon Linda

Greetings and welcome to St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church!
 
My name is Linda Potter and I am the interim rector of the parish while the congregation is in the search for their permanent pastor. I have been ordained as a priest for over 25 years and retired, in 2014, from Trinity Episcopal Church, Wheaton, Illinois where I served for almost 12 years.
 
I am very excited to be a part of this vibrant and engaging
congregation. Even during this Covid time the leadership and parish
members have continued to find ways to stay connected, to worship
“together” via Zoom and to share in the various community ministries to
which they are committed. This is an unusual time requiring us to be
creative in how we program our classes, worship virtually, and offer
hospitality to Newcomers.
All of us are delighted to share the joy of this faith community with you
and know that I and all the clergy are available for conversation with you—
about this congregation, membership, our community and our beliefs—or if
there’s anything else on your mind.
     
Welcome to St. Gabe’s!
              ~Canon Linda Potter
