Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Congratulations to all of our students who received their First Holy Communion on Saturday. It was a beautiful day where these children received Jesus in a very special way for the first time! Remember that Jesus calls on us daily to receive Him in the Eucharist. Please know that you are always welcome to join your child/ren at daily Mass during the week. A very special thank you to Ms. Epley, Mrs. Allard, Mrs. Turcios and, of course, Monsignor Jon for making this day so memorable for our students.
Please join us on Thursday for our May Crowning Mass at 10:00 am. Students need to be in their regular school uniforms for Mass. It’s a beautiful day where we get to honor Our Blessed Mother.
Last Friday, we had our annual I Raphael festival on the quad. The students did an amazing job and had a lot of fun creating their masterpieces. It was a special day for our entire community. Even the parishioners at St. Raphael’s can see how talented our students are!
On Tuesday, we will have our Spring Sing concert followed by the junior high play. The theme of the Spring Sing is “Rockin’ Through the Decades.” Get ready to sing along and be wowed by the little voices! We will start the evening at 6:00 pm in the Parish Hall. All students need to be in their regular school uniforms and in their classrooms by 5:45 pm. Please plan on staying for the play that follows. The play will last about 20 minutes and is called “Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie!”

The Angelus: (The Angelus is traditionally recited morning (6:00 a.m.), noon and evening (6:00 p.m.) throughout the year except during Paschal time, when the Regina Coeli is recited instead.)
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh.
And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
