Happy (Almost) Retirement!

On behalf of the staff and students of St. Paul, I would like to extend a heart felt thank you to Mrs. Patterson as she is retiring at the end of this school year. Her love and dedication to her students throughout the years was evident each and every day. We wish her a joyous and relaxing retirement. Please click here to read a message from Mr. Patterson.

St. Raphael Parish News:

Dear Parishioners,

Greetings to you. Here is the Sunday mass link, https://youtu.be/p-zjlAU2wmc

As mentioned earlier from this Tuesday we will be opening the church. There have been a few inquiries and concerns raised. I do understand that some of you have concerns about reopening. I just want to inform you that even though we are opening the church you don’t have to feel obliged to attend the mass. If you are worried or if you are living with elderly parents it is totally understandable. We can prepare only to a certain extend. This does not guarantee that we will be safe at 100%. So you have the choice. The dioceses have given an exemption to the obligation towards Sunday mass until the pandemic is over.


If you choose to come for mass, you are required to wear the mask and maintain social distance. We try our best to keep everyone safe. The chapel and the office continue to remain closed until further notice. 
With love and Prayers

Father Francis Salasiar CSC
