WEEKLY LETTER FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

“Use me, God.  Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”   - Martin Luther King, Jr.


Dear Saint Raphael Parents & Friends,

I finally finished my one-thousand-piece puzzle! I realized something as I reached the part that seemed to be all one color and that I thought would be nearly impossible because they all looked the same. As I looked closely at each piece, I realized that the unique pattern and blending of colors made each piece very different. Sometimes we look at people and make general statements about who we think they are based on the color of their skin or their cultural background. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought for what makes each of us deserving of the dignity and individuality that God gave us.

The quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. is also very similar to our own, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” It is good to remember why we had a three-day weekend and to understand that the dream of Dr. King to have a country without racism is still a work in progress. We do need to encourage our children to stay close to God to learn how they can use their special talents to make the dream of equality a reality.

Thank you to all of the students and families that attended the funeral of Ian Baird’s mother, Karina. It was very moving to have many of his classmates sing the opening song of the Mass and to show their support for their classmate. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from our Saint Raphael community for Ian and his family in this difficult time. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

The auction is coming up quickly and we truly need the support of all families. Please consider a donation for the auction as soon as possible--late is better than never!

Catholic Schools Week begins with our Family Mass on Sunday, January 28, at 9:00 am. We are looking for students to sing in the choir at that Mass and will have practices on Thursdays, Jan. 18 and Jan. 25 at 3:30pm. The Mass will be followed by a special Open House in the school and preschool from 10 am to noon. Students who wear their uniform to the Mass will receive free dress on a specific day. This is our chance to show off our fabulous school and community. Invite a family to attend and you will be entered in a raffle for free registration for next school year (new family must fill out an interest card). Now is the time to tell others that SRS is the BEST!

May our children be a part of making Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream a reality.

Lydia Collins, Principal
