  • CHRISTMAS 2014 [Psalm 96]
    Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord

    Psalm 96 is song of praise to the Lord who comes to establish his justice in the world. This psalm is used as responsorial for Christmas midnight Mass to proclaim the birth of Christ. The church invites all to praise the benevolent love of God, manifested in Jesus Christ. The psalm affirms that the universe belongs to God and it is symbol of generosity and harmony; on the other-hand, human mind is divisive and destructive.

  • St. Raphael Parish Vision Statement

    It is our prayer that St. Raphael Parish is a community that characterizes the following vision:
    1. Where all members as disciples of Christ are encouraged to have a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through a focus on Sacred Scriptures and the Sacraments, especially the Sunday Eucharist.
    2. Where Liturgy is celebrated with the full, conscious and active participation of the members.
    3. Where sacraments are readily available and all Catholics are able to receive them throughout all stages of life.
    4. Where the sanctity of human life is supported from conception to natural death.
    5. Where all people feel welcomed and experience hospitality and spirituality.
    6. Where the many gifts of the faithful are discovered, affirmed and developed to build a vibrant catholic community.
    7. Where everyone is responsive to persons who are in need, vulnerable or marginalized.
    8. Where religious education and faith formation are provided for all ages.
    9. Where stewardship is a way of life and where all parish ministries are fully staffed and funded, and our building and facilities are regularly maintained.
    10.Where evangelization is understood as a responsibility of all, efforts to invite people into the Church are fruitful, and the Rite of Christian Initiation is fully celebrated.
    11.Where members actively encourage vocations to religious life and the priesthood.
    12.Where the ministries of our Bishop are supported and funded.
    13.Where we acknowledge and embrace the history of our parish and the sacrifices previously made and use that history of sacrifice as a model for our future.
    This vision will be a guide for all planning and pastoral work that is done in each of our four faith communities.
