Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

Oh, what a night! We want to thank everyone that participated in making the “Round-Up” such a memorable event for our school. It was a wonderful evening and you could tell just how much fun people were having with the laughter and energy throughout the night. Thank you for making this a night to remember! A very special thank you to our auction committee for all of their devotion in putting this event together. We want to thank Stef Carty, Kerri Boeddeker, Betty Borgatello, MaryAnne Chambers, Melissa Franzen, Dena Hayes, Lashawn Hayes, Kelly Jensen, Kathy Koeper, Steve Martin, and Amy Urzua for their countless hours in making the “Round-Up” so special!

As we continue through our Lenten journey, I cannot help but reflect on the surprise rain (and hail in some areas!) that we had last week. Even though the rain is cold, wet, and can cause us problems in Santa Barbara, it is also a sign of life to the flowers just waiting to blossom in the springtime. Furthermore, the rain washes away the dirt and grime on the sidewalks and cars. Please remember that Jesus always promises us life and has given us the gift of Reconciliation to wash away our “dirt and grime.” Please keep our second grade students in your prayers, as they will have their First Reconciliation service next Tuesday. There is a Reconciliation service for all of us at St. Raphael Parish at 7:00 pm on Monday, March 16th.. What a beautiful blessing!

Our WASC/WCEA accreditation visit is right around the corner. For the past two years, our teachers and staff have been writing the Improving Student Learning document and preparing for the Visiting Committee. We are looking forward to the three-day visit on March 17-19, as we have teachers and principals from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles visiting our school and reviewing our document. We are excited to share our success story!

In Mary’s Love,

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

I hope you can take the time to meditate with your child/ren on at least the next three Stations of the Cross this week.

Station Four: Jesus Meets His Mother

Station Five: Simon Helps Carry the Cross

Station Six: Veronica Wipes Jesus’ Face

Simeon said to Mary his mother: "This child is destined to be the downfall and the rise of many in Israel, a sign that will be opposed. And you yourself shall be pierced with a sword, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be laid bare." O Mother of my Savior,
you stand beside Your Son.
With love beyond all telling,
you share His grief as one.
How shall I know your sorrow,
your tears beyond compare?
Deep in my heart stand watching,
and call my memory there.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

A man named Simon of Cyrene, was coming in from the fields, and they pressed him into service to carry the Cross.

Simon, coming in from the fields,
was pressed to carry Your cross.
Did he come to know You, Lord,
walking by Your side?
By Your meeting with the Cyrenean,
may we find You in the stranger,
and in the needy we meet.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

He who welcomes You, welcomes me; and he who welcomes me, welcomes Him who sent me. And I promise that whoever gives a cup of cold water will not want for a reward.

A woman named Veronica
kindly washed Your face with a towel.
Such a simple thing!
A towel, a cup of water, a loving word.
By Your meeting with Veronica, Lord,
help us value such small things,
so great when given in Your name.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

 

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
