  1. To the community of St. Paul the first hermit. Fr. Gabriel was a long-time school friend at CBC Leederville. He was always a gentle, earnest, reflective soul who was well regarded by all.

    Along with all who knew him, we pray for the repose of his immortal soul and thank God for his life. We are all the richer for having known him.
