Mission

At St. Gabriel's ~ San Gabriel Episcopal Church we strive to encounter God, build meaningful relationships, and make a difference in the world. Here is how we do that: We are an energetic bilingual (English/Spanish) Christian community in the Episcopal tradition located in Leesburg, VA where diversity is intentionally engaged, worship is wonderfully empowering, and all people are fully integrated without barriers.

Profile

Educando con Amor - Teaching with love is in its second year, it is a collaborative community program provided by Saint Gabriel's Episcopal Church and DREAMer's MOMS© at the Fields of Leesburg, a 405 apartment complex in downtown Leesburg.  Our early childhood education/literacy program promotes full bilingualism for children in grades pre-K through grade 7. The majority of the children born in the United States to Latino parents, while they speak Spanish to their parents, they do not know how to read and write the language.

 

Ful bilingualism is an essential life skill that will enhance their opportunities including higher education, job options, and socio-economic stability. Language skills development at the earliest stages of life are critical for full bilingualism. 

 

 

We currently have 36 children enrolled in Educando con Amor, there are four adult teachers and three teen assistant teachers. 

 

Give Choose 2018 will help cover the costs of materials, end of semester celebrations, and operational costs for an annual field trip.  We affirm that "Education is Power" and that being bilingual will bring new opportunties to students of every age. This program embodies our commitment to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being!
