Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve You as You deserve. –St. Ignatius of Loyola

Dear Saint Raphael Parents & friends,

191 cards! Last week my birthday surprise included receiving cards from all of the students, having Las Mañanitas sung to me with our incredible guitar band, and getting a breakfast spread from the faculty. The precious words written on the students’ cards reflect the heart of our school: gratitude for being at Saint Raphael’s. I am truly blessed by the generosity and love of our community!

It is appropriate to have such gratitude in this month of Thanksgiving. It is so important to teach our children to be grateful for all that they have, and to remember those that have less. Our school-wide Thanksgiving Feast is this Friday, November 16, starting at 11:30 am in the gym. We ask the students to bring canned or dried food this week for the Interact club food drive to fill the parish food pantry for those who have less than us.

We are also grateful for the veterans who have served our country. We realize the tremendous sacrifice that so many made and we pray for them and their families.

The day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 23, the city of San Rafael holds the Parade of Lights, which Saint Raphael School has been a part of for years. We ask parents to help decorate our float for the parade (school parking lot, beginning at 2:30-3:00 pm) and invite families to walk behind our float. The parade entries line up near the San Rafael Library at 5:00 pm for a 5:30 start time. Lots of fun and a chance to show that SRS is the BEST!

As many fires rage across the state, we are grateful for the firefighters who struggle to save lives and homes. Please keep them and those who have lost family members and homes in the fires.

May we show gratitude for our blessings by answering God’s call to generously serve others.

Lydia Collins, Principal
