Year 7 Welcome Mass

At the beginning of each academic year, we hold a special welcome Mass for Year 7. This is an opportunity for parents and students to be officially welcomed into St Gabriel’s community, alongside their form teachers. This year, the Year 7’s created an offertory gift for the Year 7 Welcome Mass, made up of images of angels. This has now formed part of our display in the school Chapel.

Year 11 Leavers Mass

Each summer, we hold a Year 11 leavers Mass, where we remember all the great moments from the 5 years the students have spent at St Gabriel’s and remind them that they will always be part of the St Gabriel’s community.

House Saint Masses

This year we have started having special House Saint Masses, in memory of the Saints that each form has been named after.
