Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends, 

It’s hard to escape the tragic stories, sounds, and images in Ukraine. For those of us old enough to remember the U.S.S.R, what Russia and some of the surrounding countries was before its government fell, we cannot help but think of the old U.S.S.R that controlled people’s access to information, their movements, their words, and their choices. After experiencing both ways of life, the Ukrainian people are fighting to keep their freedom and are showing unwavering courage. Let us continue to keep the Ukrainian people in our prayers, as well as the kind people who are providing food and shelter for refugees.  

A visiting committee will be on our campus from March 29 - 31 as part of our accreditation renewal process.  The group is comprised of principals and other teachers from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  At least once every six years, a team visits the school to review our programs, policies, and procedures. We would have been visited last year, but the visits were delayed due to the pandemic. Every school strives towards continuously improving and an accreditation visit provides an outside perspective.  The visiting committee will visit classrooms, talk with students, staff, and parents. They also review our self-study to help guide us for the upcoming years.  We look forward to welcoming the team next week.

Online registration is open for the 2022-2023 school year. Please register online before March 21st. Use to complete the online registration process.  We will be opening registration to new families on our waitlist on March 22nd, so please be sure to register to reserve your child’s spot for next year.

Can God fall, a mighty God,
whose hands uphold all that is?
By Your second fall, O Lord,
remember how weak we are,
remember our helplessness,
remember our human frailty,
and come to our assistance.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Women wept as You passed
and You said, "Weep not for me
but for your children."
Keep the grace of this meeting
alive in our hearts, Lord.
Keep us concerned
for humanity's children.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Like water poured out,
Your strength is gone.
You fall as if to the dust of death.
By Your third fall, O Lord,
give us courage before our trials
and patience to go on.
Help us in our need.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
