Over the course of 2021, several folks from St. Gabriel’s will share a bit about their faith journeys, how they came to St. Gabriel’s, and why they continue to make this community their spiritual home.

Our most recent speaker is Ann Burgy. She shares her story of growing up in the Roman Catholic church, during which she discerned calls from God to ministry. Her discernment, prayers, and choices eventually led her to the Episcopal church and to St. Gabriel’s.
