Nativity of Our Lord & Saint Gabriel Parish was established in 2019, bringing together two historic parishes that had borne these names for a combined 290 years. The new parish serves the people of Bridgeport and Canaryville on two campuses, each boasting both a church and a school. Saint Gabriel is known as the messenger of the Annunciation, the archangel sent by God to alert Mary that she was to become the mother of the Savior. The Nativity of our Lord marks the event of the Incarnation through which the Son of God took on human flesh. We strive to be messengers announcing the Good News of the Gospel and incarnating Christ’s presence in our own lives and in the life of our parish.
