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.
