Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends, 

Last week was one of those weeks where I was reminded over and over that St. Raphael School continues to shine with our current students and our supportive alumni.  Three of our six Science Fair finalists were recognized at the Santa Barbara County Science Fair, and one of these students placed first and will be going on to compete at the State level! Congratulations to Norah for heading to States, and to Angela and Violet for receiving medals! One of our recent alumna, Sydney Naour, was named Bishop Diego’s Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award Recipient.  Some the comments about Sydney were that she leads by example and shows willingness to help others.  Way to go, Sydney!  Finally, I saw that Bella Molony, another St. Raphael alumna, is tearing up the track at Santa Barbara City College.  It’s great to see how our students are challenged inside and outside of the classroom and are taking the values they learn here out into the world! 

This Friday, we have Spring Picture Day.  All students are welcome to not be in uniform for this day.  Looking forward to seeing all of the smiles!

Just a reminder that every Friday during Lent, we are selling $5 grilled cheese sandwiches served with fruit and milk, and includes a side of vegetables or a cup of soup.  You can also purchase tortilla chips with homemade salsa for $2.  Please make sure to send your child/ren to school with money for lunch as funds will not come out of your child’s food truck account.  These lunches will help offset the cost of our overnight trips for grades 5-8.  Remember you can always come for a grilled cheese sandwich, too!  Lunch is served from 12 - 12:30 pm.

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

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
