Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Let's get ready for “A Night in Santa Barbara” this Saturday at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Doors open at 5:00 pm and following the event, there will be dancing! We are looking forward to the beautiful setting and delicious food catered by Martino’s and wine provided by Fess Parker! Please note the event is outside so please dress warm!
We love that our families share their joy with others about what’s wonderful at our school. We recently received notifications of a few referrals from current families, and I want to thank you all for sharing the good news about St. Raphael School with friends and neighbors! If the students you refer do register, you and your referral will each receive $100 off tuition. Use this link to refer a friend today! CatholicEd.com/Refer
Next week, we will enter into the beautiful Lenten Season on Ash Wednesday with a school Mass. Please join us at 10:00 am for Mass. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of alms giving, penance, reflection, and fasting, which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday through which we attain redemption. All students will receive a mite/alms giving box to support our homeless brothers and sisters in the Santa Barbara area. This loose change will change lives!

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
