Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

We want to extend a big congratulations to Mrs. Waples and Ms. Schiferl as they have been selected as “Co-Teachers of the Year” in Santa Barbara and Goleta from the Elks for the excellence in the classrooms. We also want to acknowledge students from both of their classes that participated in an American Essay contest writing about what the Pledge of Allegiance means to them. Jessica Froelicher, Alana Blue and Olivia Serverson were selected as top students from the 5th grade. Reade Varesio, Jacob Koeper and Kalissa Flint were honored from 7th and 8th grade. These students will head to the California district level with their essays and will be recognized with a special dinner and award on Tuesday, January 27th at the Elks Lodge 613.

On Thursday, we will have our fourth Mass at Bishop Diego High School. All of the Catholic school students will celebrate Mass with our priests from our local parishes.  On Friday, January 30th, we will have our Family Lunch Day from 12:00 – 1:00 pm and our Open House from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Each classroom will have something special for you to see. It’s a great opportunity to visit our other classrooms to see what happens at the various grade levels. There will be an Open House Passport for you to visit all of our classrooms to receive a non-uniform pass.

Prayer for Catholic Schools
O Christ, our Teacher, You invite Your faithful people to make disciples in Your name and to announce good news to the poor.  We thank You for the gift of Catholic schools, where the message of Your life, death, and resurrection is proclaimed, Christian community is experienced, service to our brothers and sisters is modeled, and worship of You is cultivated.

Increase our zeal for ensuring that all children and families can benefit from a high quality Catholic education, and that Catholic schools grow in their ability to nurture the soul of our nation. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady, Mother of Catholic Schools.  Amen.



St. Raphael, Pray for Us!

Mission Statement

SR_Emblem-150hSt. Raphael School was founded when God answered a Daughter of Charity’s prayer.  To this day, our mission is consistent with that of our founding Sisters: to educate all children in preschool through eighth grade in mind, body and spirit by imparting the values of Jesus through a rigorous curriculum, devoted faculty and an actively involved parent community.
