Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

On March 19th, our Church celebrates the Feast Day of St. Joseph. In obedience, Joseph took Mary to be his wife, knowing that she was with child by the power of God. We look to the strength in his character through many repeated difficult situations: the journey to Bethlehem, the sojourn into Egypt, the loss and then the finding of the child Jesus in the Temple at Jerusalem. Joseph and Mary’s self-giving love for each other is a true model of the Christian family. Joseph is the patron saint of the dying because, assuming he died before Jesus' public life, he died with Jesus and Mary close to him, the way we all would like to leave this earth. Joseph is also patron saint of the Universal Church, families, fathers, expectant mothers, travelers, immigrants, house sellers and buyers, craftsmen, engineers, and working people in general. St. Joseph, pray for us!

Last week, our second graders made their 1st Reconciliation. Our entire student body gathered, sang and prayed before this special sacrament. We are so proud of our students and are grateful for the grace that the sacrament confession offers all of us all. Lent is a great time to go to confession. We have a Penance Service at St. Raphael Parish on April 3 at 7:00 pm.

Our girls JV and Varsity basketball teams are in full swing of their seasons. For the past two weeks, they have both had home games and it is amazing to watch them play. They are not only improving with their fundamentals and skills on the court but are learning what it means to be a team. This was very apparent when every girl on the JV team scored in their 42-8 victory over Providence. Go, Chargers!

Station Ten: Jesus is Stripped of His Clothes

Station Eleven: Jesus is Nailed to the Cross

Station Twelve: Jesus Dies

They divided Your garments
and cast lots for Your clothes.
Stripped of all dignity,
You had nothing of Your own.
By your despoilment, O Lord,
clothe us in your mercy
which is rich beyond words.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Nailed to the cross,
You know how many feel
who, bound by circumstance,
year by year get nowhere.
By Your riven hands and feet, Lord,
help those fixed to a cross
by long illness or misfortune.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Once the prophet said:
"Who can believe our report?"
God's Servant, crushed in sorrow,
pierced for our offenses!
Shall we not stand watching, Lord,
mourning the sins You bear,
rejoicing in the pardon You bestow?

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
