Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Last Thursday our second graders received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. It was a beautiful prayer service with the entire school that ended with everyone singing “This Little Light of Mine.” Students were reminded that in baptism they received the light of Christ and are called to be the light of Christ for others. Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Jesus forgives our sins and allows our lights to shine even brighter for all to see! We want to thank Monsignor Jon and Monsignor Rafael for supporting our students during their First Reconciliation.
Our Jog-a-Thon is just a few weeks away! The kids will be running, running, running for our school. This is the last of our three fundraisers for the year. These three fundraisers help pay for all of the “extras” at our amazing school. Some of the “extras” are Wilderness Youth Project, ARF, the garden program, physical education, library, and much more. Please support our goal of having each child raise $150. Asking neighbors, friends and family for a $5 to $10 donation can add up quickly! Let’s see if we can beat our goal of $31,000 this year!
It’s amazing that we are in the end of April and the next few weeks are going to fly by as our calendar is jam packed with learning excursions, activities and celebrations. Please help us all by keeping your children focused, organized, and prepared to learn every day.

Act of Contrition
Oh my God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In His name, my God, have mercy. Amen.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
