Greetings from Ft. Myers Beach! Last weekend was a reminder that the tropical summer season has arrived as we faced the potential of the first named storm this year. As it turned out it was just a very, very wet weekend!

At St. Raphael's we are missing all our seasonal parishioners who have left the island for the summer. Wherever you are this summer, I hope you’ll spend the time getting reacquainted with friends and family, take on that meaty book you’ve been setting aside, recognize the beauty of God’s creation, and consider again God’s amazing grace and call on your life.

If you are here in town, I hope you’ll frequent church on Sundays and join us for fellowship and refreshments following worship as we continue to live into our vision of Healing, Hope and Hospitality on Ft. Myers Beach.

Loving God, through your grace guide us, the people of St. Raphael's, to joyfully carry out our mission of growing faith in your son, Jesus Christ. Fill us with your Holy Spirit that we may develop a living faith that deepens our understanding of you and strengthens our awareness of the needs of others.

All this we ask in the name of your Son, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  
Amen.
