Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day! The meaning of Thanksgiving Day, of course, is giving thanks. The word “Eucharist” means thanksgiving. Mass is the ultimate thank you to God, because it is the union of the gift of our lives with Jesus’ gift of His life. Thursday is not a Holy Day of Obligation; it is not a day when you have to go to Mass. It is a day when we get to go to Mass. Many times we come before God and say, "I need, I want, please do.” This is our chance to come back and say, "I love You; You are so good; thank You!”

Last week, our 6th-8th graders attend a junior high retreat at Bishop Diego High School. Our students were extremely excited about this wonderful opportunity. Our three local Catholic schools, Notre Dame, Mount Carmel and St. Raphael School celebrated as a community at our local Catholic high school. We thank Bishop Diego High School for providing this special experience for our students.

Parent/teacher conferences are underway and will continue until Wednesday. Thank you for your continued support by being the primary educators of your children.  

Students are dismissed at noon on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope and pray that you will enjoy this time with family and friends, and remember to give God thanks for all of the blessings He has bestowed on us.

November 24-26:
Noon Dismissal for Parent Teacher Conferences

In Mary’s Love,

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

A Prayer for Thanksgiving:

Father in Heaven, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please look kindly upon us and receive our heartfelt gratitude in this time of giving thanks.

Thank you for all the graces and blessings. You have bestowed upon us, spiritual and temporal: our faith and religious heritage. Our food and shelter, our health, the loves we have for one another, our family and friends.

Dear Father, in Your infinite generosity, please grant us continued graces and blessing throughout the coming year.   This we ask in the Name of Jesus, Your Son and our Brother. Amen.



St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
