We, the Parish of Saint Raphael, are the People of God called to further the mission of Jesus Christ.
We see as our purpose the bringing of active members of our parish,
as well as inactive Catholics and the unchurched, into a deeper union with God.
We do this by living the Gospel, in word and action, centered around the celebration of the Eucharist.
We believe that today, more than any other time, we are called to form a community based on
interdependence as the one Body of Christ.
We do this by deepening our knowledge and understanding of the treasure of our Catholic faith,
and by giving to our church family with our time, talend and treasure.

Breaking Open the Word [Ephesians 4:1-13]
Bear with one another through love
The Ascension of the Lord
Paul reminds the church in Ephesus that the very identity of a christian is as one spiritually united with Christ; a christian is called to be an agent of creative change in the world, a catalyst of love to inspire hope and joy. A christian’s life should reflect what he/she professes or teaches, conformity between faith and action. There is in the world a tension between works of darkness and works of light.
