Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
HE HAS RISEN, ALLELUIA! Wishing all of you a blessed Easter season! This beautiful time in our church extends for 50 days, ending with the feast of Pentecost. The true joy of the Easter season was felt around the world this weekend in John’s Gospel, as we heard Jesus continually tell His disciples, “Peace be with you.” Let us all be people of peace and Alleluia people as we continue through this beautiful Easter season.
We are gearing up for our final fundraiser of the year, our Jog-a-Thon! It’s time to start getting those donations. As we are preparing for this fun day, it’s a perfect time to celebrate the great success of the auction fundraiser. That wonderful night earned $53,680 for our school. Please remember that these fundraisers help keep our tuition affordable for families. Get those pledges! The Jog-a-Thon is on Friday, May 11.
This Friday we do not have school due to a teacher training day. Our teachers will be meeting with other teachers at Catholic schools to continue to improve instructional techniques. This is valuable time for our entire staff. Enjoy your long weekend.

Catholic Easter Prayer
Lord, the resurrection of Your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.
