Day of Giving - December 19, 2017
Dear Parents,

Part of the mission at St. Raphael is to provide faith-filled service to others. We want our students to understand that there are needs in our own community, and they are able to help. We held our 6th Annual Day of Giving this past week. Our student body worked together to serve our community. The students collected toiletries and delivered blankets they made for Sallie House, sorted clothes they donated at Clothes to Kids, delivered bikes to Callee’s Bikes, served others at Day Star and St. Vincent DePaul and last but not least our awesome choir students entertained residents at Bon Secours. In the season of Advent we focused on giving so that others were able to receive.

Thank you for all of your assistance in making this such a success.

Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Bogataj
