Author and speaker Ed Sri will take us on a Biblical Walk through Christ’s Passion this Lent through his series No Greater Love. The video portion of the study is filmed in the Holy Land, and we will see actual places where Jesus was such as the rock in the garden where Jesus prayed on the night he was betrayed. You will walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary. Bible expert Ed Sri will show how Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ's suffering and death.

Ever wish you knew more about your Catholic faith? Then this is for you!
Many of us know our Catholic faith but don’t really feel like we KNOW it or understand it well enough to speak easily with others about it. Catholicism 101 will be an opportunity to learn more about our faith. It is designed to meet people where they're at, whether they wish they knew their faith better, have been away from the Church for a while, or even are not Catholic but would like to learn about the Catholic faith. A variety of topics will be offered, most for 2-3 sessions. Content is based on the Adult Catechism. All sessions are Tuesday evenings, 6-8 pm.
Topics include The Creed, Prayer, Christian Morality, Sacraments I, Sacraments II, Devotions, Saints & Sacramentals, and All Things Catholic.
Canceled for at least April until the diocesan-wide mandated hiatus on activities is lifted.
Lead by Fr. Dave Duffeck. Reference materials and breakfast provided at no charge. Please bring your own Bible.
The Called & Gifted Workshop that was scheduled for May 2 at St. Raphael has been canceled. We are hoping to reschedule it in the future.
God is calling you to a unique purpose in life, a work of love that only you can do. Discern your charisms (spiritual gifts) and begin to discern God’s call. You have received gifts in Baptism and Confirmation through which God intends His love to reach others. Come and discover these charisms in you! This workshop is facilitated by a trained diocesan team. The $50 registration includes all materials, lunch, and refreshments.

If you’re looking for social time and stimulating conversation, then you may enjoy a book discussion group we're forming at St. Raphael with the goal to read high quality literature from all genres and grow in friendship in the process! Each month we’ll read a different book through Well Read Mom program, though the group is open to all women.
The Well-Read Mom program provides thoughtful questions to reflect on as you read the book and additional study material. Books will be from all genres.
