ALL ARE WELCOME
St. Raphael Parish, founded in 1961, is dedicated to one of the archangels, Raphael, whose name means “God has healed”. St. Raphael is the patron of travelers, the blind, happy meetings, nurses, physicians, medical workers and even matchmakers. “Happy Meetings” would best describe our Masses and events.
We are a Roman Catholic community of richly diverse cultures and ethnic backgrounds, joyfully united in the worship for Jesus Christ. We find beauty in our diversity and we embrace and share in our different cultures. We are all one in the Spirit and welcome you to come and worship with us.

We are a parish family striving to make the Good News 'walk-on-two-feet' through joyful welcome, compassion and stewardship.
At St. Raphael Parish, we are dedicated to bringing people closer to Jesus Christ by celebrating the Mass, the Sacraments, religious education for all ages, and many events where parishioners can come together, enjoy fellowship and build supportive friendships.
Our parish has a variety of ministries that reflect our belief that, as members of the Body of Christ, we are, as Christ is, Priest, Prophet and King. As Priest, we lead and participate in worship and evangelization; as Prophets, we teach; as Kings, we serve.
