The Angel, Gabriel
Our school is named for the Angel Gabriel. According to the Prophet Daniel, it was Gabriel the Archangel who announced to him the time of the coming of the Messiah.
He appeared to Zachary "standing on the right side of the altar of incense," as St. Luke says, to make known the future birth of John the Baptist.
Gabriel's greatest honor was to be sent to Mary at Nazareth and to ask her if she wanted to be the Mother of God.
Gabriel's name means "the strength of God." He is used as a messenger in the work that shows the power and glory of God.
