New initiative. Here's how you can help through service at St. Raphael
Hello everyone, Please see the message below from our parish staff regarding a new and much needed initiative. Read the full message, watch the video, pray and sign up to serve.
In these confusing and stressful times we look to God to shine a light as we go forward. The past several days we have heard from several people eager to brainstorm ways to support our most vulnerable. We’ve been burning the midnight oil, thinking strategically and designing a variety of paths we as individuals and families can take to reach out to make a difference in another’s experience. The earliest followers of Christ stood out from the larger society for their encompassing love and compassion for each other. We are no different today, let’s get to work!
Our first goal is to build the team that we are calling St. Raphael’s Hands and Feet. We have several options for involvement, all of which respect social distancing, do not put people at risk or can be fulfilled from your home. Opportunities exist for individuals and families to reach out and connect with someone in a meaningful way.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to fulfill our parish vision to connect consciously and serve selflessly as we support our community. God is good.
Peace be with you,
