Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends, 

As we enter this second week of Advent, we re-light the candle of hope and now also light the second purple candle of love. We know that God is love. We remember with thankful hearts the gift of Jesus, who came as a babe in a manger, lived and loved among us, was killed on a cross, and rose! Love endures forever.  We must think of Mary and her anticipation as she awaited the birth of Our Lord and Savior.  In a similar manner we should be anticipating and preparing the way of the Lord.  Mary was willing to do whatever God wanted of her. She is a good example for us to follow.  Who are some of the other good examples in our lives?  May we always thank God for being there to help us along our way in this life.  Hoping and praying that this season of Advent brings us all closer to Jesus. 

We will have our monthly school Mass this Wednesday at 10:45 am.  It’s the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron saint of the Americas.  Please join us as we honor Our Blessed Mother. 

Our annual school Christmas program is on Thursday, December 20th at 6:00 pm in the church.  You will want to mark your calendars for this beautiful celebration.  The title of the show is “Special Delivery: Wrapped in the Father’s Love.”  This program will be a little different but full of joy.  Get ready for one of a kind songs that will keep you singing for days!

It’s not too late to receive daily emails from our new Bishop during this beautiful season of Advent.  You can sign up for free at  Join Bishop Robert Barron and thousands of others in this beautiful time of waiting and anticipation for the birth of Jesus!

Important Dates:
December 12: School Mass at 10:45 am

In Mary’s Love,

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal
