Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

Lent is a time of deep reflection and we begin our Lenten journey together this Wednesday with a special Mass at 10:00 am in the church, but it’s time to prepare for this journey now. This past week at Mass we listened to the Gospel story when Jesus told his disciples that Our Father knows all of our needs and that first and foremost we must seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. “Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.” What a great message for the beginning of the Lenten journey to remind us that God is in charge and we must put our trust in Him. During this wonderful season, please find ways to remember the wonderful faith-forming experiences, and bring those encounters with us as we walk through life with our families, friends and neighbors. Please join Bishop Barron’s daily Lenten reflections by signing up at

Our 29th annual auction was quite a night! A very special thank you to our auction committee and all those that attended making this a night to remember while supporting our amazing school at the same time. When you see these people around campus, please give them a big thank you! : Kerri Boeddeker, Stef Carty, Shellee Castillo, Violeta Cortez, Lisa Cram, Laura Danhauer, Melissa Franzen, Dena Hayes, LaShawn Hayes, Nicole Ketting, Steve Martin, Daniel Mault, Lindsey Mault, Vivian Solodkin, Maralee Trexler, Amy Urzua and Julie Woolfolk .

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

Station One: Jesus Condemned

Station Two: Jesus Carries His Cross

Station Three: Jesus Falls for the First Time

Pilate brought Jesus outside and said to the people, "Look at your king!"

At this they shouted, "Away with Him! Crucify Him!"

Then Pilate handed Jesus over to be crucified.

"Behold your king," says Pilate." Away with Him," the people shout.
And they sent you to Your death.
Lord Jesus, Word made flesh,
Light for our dark world,
God come to save us,
may we never send You away.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Jesus was led away,
and carrying the cross by Himself,
went out to what is called
the Place of the Skull, Golgotha.

You were led to Calvary, Lord,
carrying the cross by Yourself.
Yet was the cross only Yours,
or was it also mine You bore?
By Your holy cross, O Jesus,
make me strong and able
to take up the cross I must bear.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Jesus emptied Himself,
and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.
He humbled himself,
to death and a cross.

How strange to see You fall
as anyone does who cannot go on.
And yet You rise again
to take the few steps more You can.
By Your first fall, O Jesus,
give Your risen grace
to those who fall and cannot rise.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
