Newsletter November 17, 2014




Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

Last week, we celebrated saints in a beautiful Mass with Monsignor Jon. He shared with us how we are all called to live lives like the saints. We need to learn from these holy men and women and pray to them for their guidance and love. As we continue through the month of November, we are asked to pray for all of our loved ones that have gone before us.

On Friday, Deacon Steve came to school with the Monstrance and our entire student body followed Jesus to the field for Adoration. Students from KK-8th grade spent some quite time on the field with our Savior. Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us. During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist. By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, the Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.

Parent/Teacher Conferences begin on Friday, November 21st and continue Monday, November 24th-26th. Please note that we have noon dismissal on these days. This is a wonderful opportunity to sit with your child’s teacher and discuss progress and ways that we can work together for a successful year!

Please remember that next week is Thanksgiving. Students are dismissed at noon on Wednesday for this beautiful 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.

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

As we enter into the season of Thanksgiving, please pray this prayer of gratitude.

Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us.

 From The Catholic Prayer Book, compiled by Msgr. Michael Buckley.
