Perpetual adoration chapel at St. Gabriel

adorationParishioners at St. Gabriel the Archangel in Hopkins celebrated the opening of an adoration chapel at the parish’s St. Joseph campus March 19 with a procession from the church to the chapel after a Mass celebrating the Feast of St. Joseph.

The space for the new chapel became available when St. Joseph and St. John the Evangelist parishes merged to become St. Gabriel in January 2013. The merge freed up what used to be office space at the St. Joseph campus, and it was renovated to serve as the adoration chapel.
