Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
HE HAS RISEN, ALLELUIA! Wishing all of you a blessed Easter season! This beautiful time in our church extends for 50 days, ending with the feast of Pentecost. The true joy of the Easter season was felt around the world this weekend in John’s Gospel, as we heard Jesus continually tell His disciples, “Peace be with you.” Let us all be people of peace and Alleluia people as we continue through this beautiful Easter season.
Next Thursday is our Jog-a-Thon. May the Fourth Be With You! The kids will be running, running, running for our school. This is the last of our three fundraisers for the year. These three fundraisers help pay for all of the “extras” at our amazing school. Some of the “extras” are Wilderness Youth Project, AFR, the garden program, physical education, library, and much more. Please support our goal of having each child raise $150. Asking neighbors, friends and family for a $5 to $10 donation can add up quickly! Let’s see if we can beat our goal of $31,000 this year!
It’s amazing that we are in the end of April and the next few weeks are going to fly by as our calendar is jam packed with learning excursions, activities and celebrations. Please help us all by keeping your children focused, organized, and prepared to learn every day.

Please pray the closing prayer of The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury
of compassion --- inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with
great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will,
which is Love and Mercy itself.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
