Nowadays, it is very popular to use human hair extentions for styling. It is not necessary to afflict real hair extensions. Secondly, you can think long and long, and short and short. The wigs are endless, and the hair extensions are the most popular.

About us.


Lead Pastor

Pastor Gabrielle was led to start Mary of Bethany Church (MofB) in partnership with St. Paul’s Church, Darien on the eve of Pentecost in June, 11th 2011. MofB began with a handful of believers out of a passion for the things of God, the authentic gospel of Christ Jesus, the Sacraments, praying without ceasing and seeing people connected to the manifested presence of a loving and merciful God.

Gabrielle has been married for over two decades and resides in lower Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, David. They have two teen-aged children, David and Danielle.
