All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all that I have not seen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear Saint Raphael Parents and Friends,

Did you see the “super snow moon?” My husband convinced me to go outside last night and see the super snow moon—an unusually large and bright moon at this time of year. The moon is at that point in its orbit when it passes closest to the Earth, something that happens two to four times a year. It is a “wow” moment!

Yes, I am a science nerd and things like a “super snow moon” fascinate me. But it is also a beautiful reminder of God’s artistic hand in our world. The beauty of creation is the handiwork of a God who loves us.

The best time to see this “super snow moon” is tonight, Feb. 19, at moonrise or after 6:15 pm in San Rafael, as the moon rises in the west. It does mean putting down the screens (even the ones that tell us what a “super snow moon” is all about). Let us teach our children to appreciate God’s gift of nature.

We also appreciate all those who have worked hard to make “A Night in Paris” happen this Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Saint Raphael Parish Center. We will transform the gym into a delightful Parisian setting. Don’t miss the excitement of this wonderful fundraiser!

Take the time to marvel at a “super snow moon” and say ‘thank you’ for such beauty.

Lydia Collins, Principal
