“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different kinds of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)
What is spirituality at St Gabriel's Catholic School? What does it feel like? St. Gabriel's' Catholic identity is embedded in daily life at school. The traditions of our faith serve as the foundation for practicing our universality as Catholics. We live our lives in the school community through our belief in a loving God and a visible outreach to others. Religious instruction is the beginning of a carefully guided spiritual journey, where prayer, appreciation, respect, reflection and a growing knowledge base intertwine. St. Gabriel’s Catholic School affirms the virtues Christ exhibited as He walked the earth.
Although St. Gabriel's is a Catholic school, we embrace and honor the families of all faiths in our community, for their very presence enriches each one of us individually. Christians and non-Christians are more alike in their spirituality than they are different, and it is these essentials that we celebrate. As St. Gabriel's Catholic School graduates enter broader communities, we recognize that they will be working and living among many different cultures and faiths. We believe their spiritual journey that began with people of all faiths at St. Gabriel's will engender a lifelong appreciation for the many ways to worship God and enable them to live ecumenically in peace and harmony with others.
“I give you a new commandment: Love one another. Such as my love has been for you, so must your love be for each other. This is how all will know you for my disciples: your love for one another.” (John, 13:34-35)
