THE INCARNATE WORD CHAPEL
Because Christ is at the center of all we do at St. Gabriel’s Catholic School, The Incarnate Word Chapel is the heart of our School. The Chapel features hand-painted and stained glass from Florence, Italy; hand-carved statues of Mary Undoer of Knots, Joseph, and a gentle-faced Crucifix from Ortisei, Italy; and mosaics on the façade of the altar from Pietrasanta, Italy. All images in the Chapel are designed to invoke curiosity in our students. The hand-painted saints on canvas are either children themselves, or are saints who served children. The space is designed to reflect our values of prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude. The statue of Joseph features him holding the baby Jesus—a symbol of our committed and involved Saber Dads. The Incarnate Word Chapel is a child-centered sacred space for our students, faculty, staff, parents, and entire community, and is celebrated with reflection, renewal, prayer, and liturgy.
