Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

Students have been enthusiastic about the Annual Fund and supporting our school. We are on our way to our $42,000 goal! Encourage your child to call grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles and Godparents to support our efforts in the Annual Fund! Remember all of the monies raised stay at St. Raphael School! You can bring your check to the school office or even donate online at   Let’s see how quickly we can reach not only our goal, but also 100% participation!

Our first school Mass is this Thursday, September 22nd at 10:00 am. Our school Masses are always wonderful, and Monsignor Jon will bless our Student Council as school leaders for the year. Please join us in celebrating the Eucharist. All are welcome! Students should be dressed in their regular uniforms and not their PE uniforms.

            The St. Raphael Festival is this weekend. It’s so impressive that we send out a sign-up and every slot is already filled. Please join the entire St. Raphael community in celebrating and honoring our patron saint, Saint Raphael. The festival is on Sunday, September 25th from Noon – 5:00 pm. We still need cakes for the cakewalk! Don’t forget that the feast day of St. Raphael is on Thursday, September 29th.

Prayer to St. Raphael for a Safe Journey

St. Raphael, archangel, you protected Tobias as he journeyed to a distant land. How natural, therefore, for us to pray for your powerful help for safe travel and a happy return. This is what we ask for ourselves, as well as for all loved ones who are far from home. Please protect us and all travelers. Spread your loving wings of protection over us and guide us as we journey both near and far from home. ~ Amen

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!

Mission Statement

SR_Emblem-150hSt. Raphael School was founded when God answered a Daughter of Charity’s prayer.  To this day, our mission is consistent with that of our founding Sisters: to educate all children in preschool through eighth grade in mind, body and spirit by imparting the values of Jesus through a rigorous curriculum, devoted faculty and an actively involved parent community.
