Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

Lent is a time of deep reflection and we begin our Lenten journey together this Wednesday with a special Mass at 10:00 am in the church, but it’s time to prepare for this journey now. This past week at Mass we listened to the Gospel story when Jesus told Simon to lower the nets to catch fish. Even though the disciples had worked for hours not catching anything, they listened to Jesus and suddenly they caught great multitudes of fish. What a great message for the beginning of the Lenten journey to remind us that the miracles of Christ are found in our lives everyday. We must find a way to remember the wonderful faith-forming experiences, and bring those encounters with us as we walk through life with our families, friends and neighbors. Just as Jesus told the disciples they would “now be fishers of men,” we are told to go forth and to share our faith with others by bringing them to our Lord and Savior. Please join Bishop Barron’s daily Lenten reflections by signing up at

Last week, we had a great time celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Students honored our country by wearing red, white and blue and making Valentine cards for our troops. They also were excited to talk about college and higher education as we had College Day on campus. Students enjoyed their field trip to Bishop Diego High School and met our new regional bishop for the first time. We had first responders on campus and students learned from them about their careers and how they serve our community. Our school community gathered for our family lunch on the field and we had many new families attend our Open House! PHEW! That was a very busy week!

As we celebrated Catholic schools, it’s important for everyone to know the return on the investment that you are making by sending your children to our school. 99% of students that attend a Catholic high school will graduate. That number compares to only 78.2% in public schools. 85.7% of students that graduate from a Catholic school will attend college versus 39.5% for public schools. The numbers speak for themselves and show that we are preparing our students not only for college, but also for their future careers.
