 Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

Next Sunday, we enter into the beautiful season of Advent. In preparation, you might be interested in receiving daily emails from our regional Bishop. You can sign up for free at Join Bishop Robert Barron and thousands of others in this beautiful time of waiting and anticipation for the birth of Jesus!

The Scholastic Book Fair begins next week. All week long, students, parents and friends can enjoy our Book Fair. The biggest day of the week is on Thursday morning - “Dads and Donuts Day!” There are books for people of all ages, and many books make wonderful Christmas presents. Teachers will have their “wish lists” at the Book Fair, as well.

Next Friday, December 8th, is a Holy Day of Obligation. Please join our school community in celebrating the Feast of the Immaculate Conception at 10:00 am. We look forward to this special day.

Our annual school Christmas program is on Thursday, December 14th at 6:00 pm in the church. You will want to mark your calendars for this beautiful celebration. The title of the show is “Special Delivery: Wrapped in the Father’s Love.” This program will be a little different but full of joy. Get ready for some one of a kind songs that will keep you singing for days!

A Prayer for Lighting Your Advent Wreath:

O God,
as light comes from this candle,
may the blessing of Jesus Christ come to us,
warming our hearts and
brightening our way.
May Christ our Savior bring life
into the darkness of this world,
and to us, as we wait for His coming.

Prayer from:


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.
