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 annual Jog-a-Thon on Friday, May 10th, so it’s time to start gathering your jogging sponsors! As we prepare for this fun day, we reflect on the great success of the annual auction fundraiser. Did you know that our wonderful auction this year earned over $50,000 for St. Raphael School? Let’s keep up the school spirit and generosity for May 10th’s Jog-a-Thon and hustle for those jogging pledges! Our school fundraising is so important to make sure we keep tuition affordable for all families, and we are continuously grateful for all who support our special school.

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.
