Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Please continue to keep all of the people on the East Coast that have been affected by Hurricane Florence in your prayers.
Last week at daily Mass, our 6th, 7th and 8th garden passed out prayer cards to the parishioners in the pews. It was a simple yet generous gesture from our students to our local community. Parishioners were smiling from ear to ear while holding their unique cards. A gentleman sitting behind me told me that he was going to cherish this prayer card and will also pray for our students. This is what our community is all about!
Students have been enthusiastic about the Annual Fund and supporting our school. We are on our way to our $40,000 goal! Encourage your child/ren to call grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, Godparents, and anyone special to you who loves Saint Raphael School 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 athttps://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/StRaphaelSchool/AnnualFund2017.html. Let’s see how quickly we can reach not only our goal, but also 100% participation! Click here to make an online donation: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/StRaphaelSchool/AnnualFund2018.html

Please pray this prayer with your child/ren this week as we prepare for the Feast Day of St. Raphael:
Heavenly King, You have given us archangels to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth. Saint Michael is our protector; I ask him to come to my aid, fight for all my loved ones, and protect us from danger. Saint Gabriel is a messenger of the Good News; I ask him to help me clearly hear Your voice and to teach me the truth. Saint Raphael is the healing angel; I ask him to take my need for healing and that of everyone I know, lift it up to Your throne of grace and deliver back to us the gift of recovery. Help us, O Lord, to realize more fully the reality of the archangels and their desire to serve us. Holy angels, pray for us. Amen.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
