Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends, 

Last Wednesday, the St. Raphael School community entered into Lent with the special marking of ashes on our heads.  It is an outward symbol of our faith and dedication to our Savior, Jesus Christ.  In the Gospel on Ash Wednesday, we heard how Jesus emphasized the need for personal prayer. He continues to encourage us to move away from the chaos of everyday life and to go to our inner room to pray, where there is peace and quiet.  This Lenten Season is the time to remember to be transparent with God, bring our open hearts to Him and He will cleanse us.  Let us be real with God and He will reveal Himself in ways we have never imagined. He will fill us with grace from head to toe.  This is a journey that is not easy, but ultimately it will bring us closer to our Lord.  What a great expedition to share with your child!  Don’t forget to sign up for Lenten Gospel reflections from Bishop Barron at http://www.lentreflections.com/.

Please join us every Friday during Lent as our 8th graders walk us through the Living Stations of the Cross.  Stations of the Cross symbolizes our walk with Jesus Christ on His last day on Earth as a man.  This year we will be streaming the Living Stations of the Cross via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/straphaelschoolsb) on the school field.  Stations will begin at 11:00 am.

Pilate brought Jesus outside and said to the people, "Look at your king!"

At this they shouted, "Away with Him! Crucify Him!"

Then Pilate handed Jesus over to be crucified.

"Behold your king," says Pilate." Away with Him," the people shout.
And they sent you to Your death.
Lord Jesus, Word made flesh,
Light for our dark world,
God come to save us,
may we never send You away.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be 

Jesus was led away, 
and carrying the cross by Himself,
went out to what is called 
the Place of the Skull, Golgotha. 

You were led to Calvary, Lord,
carrying the cross by Yourself.
Yet was the cross only Yours,
or was it also mine You bore?
By Your holy cross, O Jesus,
make me strong and able
to take up the cross I must bear.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Jesus emptied Himself,
and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men. 
He humbled himself,
to death and a cross. 

How strange to see You fall
as anyone does who cannot go on.
And yet You rise again
to take the few steps more You can.
By Your first fall, O Jesus,
give Your risen grace
to those who fall and cannot rise.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

 St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
