Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Sometimes I am asked, “Why do we need to do fundraising?” The graph below will answer this question and will also give you deeper insight on the importance of our three major fundraisers. We strive to keep tuition affordable for anyone that would like to give the gift of a Catholic education to their children, as well as continue our extra programs that make St. Raphael School such a special place.
With that being said, we are excited about our upcoming auction! Don’t forget to sell those raffle tickets, purchase your event tickets (you don’t want to miss this one), and get ready to have a fun night! The auction is on Saturday, March 2nd at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.

A Prayer For Presidents' Day by Margaret Caglet
Dear God, it is Presidents' Day in this nation in which we live. We are so grateful and thankful for the blessings that You give. Please lead and guide our President, we ask as we earnestly pray.We pray for his heart to be right,so he can lead in a Godly way. Lord, our President is just a man.Please help him as he leads us, and upon him wisdom, please bestow. In the past, You gave to us some Presidents with visions.You gave to us some great leaders, who prayed for the right decisions. We thank you for the leadership of great Presidents of the past.You used some to do Your will, and for You, they stood steadfast. Now, Lord, please grant to us the forgiveness for our sins, and please guide us as a nation.This we ask in Jesus' name, Amen.
