Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

We had a fantastic Grandparents Day celebration! Just about 300 people participated in our luncheon and the church was packed with grandparents who had traveled from as far away as out of the country to as close as Goleta! Father Lucio celebrated the Mass and reminded us of the special love that grandparents and grandchildren share. Let us pray to Saint Ann, mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of our Savior, for the health and well-being of our grandparents!

Next Wednesday, we will have our Día de los Muertos altar on campus again in celebration of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day. You can bring in pictures of your deceased loved ones to place on the altar to honor and remember them. The altar will be blessed the following week and will remain in the quad for a few weeks for all of us to appreciate. If you would like the picture of your loved one returned, please write your family name on the back of the photo so you will receive it when the altar is removed.

On Friday, we will celebrate Halloween with a parade at 12:45 pm. Students will eat lunch together at noon and then have time to change into their costumes. Please remember that we are a Catholic school and costumes cannot be scary, violent or represent anything inappropriate or disrespectful. Following our parade, students will take part in various games and activities designed by our Student Council in our third annual Fall Festival. Parents are welcome to volunteer during the Fall Festival. We look forward to celebrating autumn as a school community.

The Fifth Joyful Mystery: Finding Jesus in the Temple      Spiritual Fruit:  Obedience to God

At twelve years of age, Jesus goes with His parents to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover.  It is on their return journey home that Joseph and Mary realize that their son is missing.  Joseph and Mary seek Him endlessly.  On the third day, they find Jesus preaching in the temple amongst teachers, who were at once astonished at His wisdom.  Despite their grief and anxiety, Jesus assures His parents that all is well, as He is doing His Father’s work.  Although Joseph and Mary do not fully understand this at the time, they will see that this event foreshadows the mission of ministry and sacrifice that Jesus will fulfill in obedience of His Heavenly Father.  This mystery teaches us that submission to God our Father comes before all else. There is always joy to be found when we seek Jesus in the spirit of obedience. 


St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
