“If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.” Mother Teresa

Dear Saint Raphael Parents and Friends,

Families were the theme for this weekend. We had two students from our school receive the sacrament of Baptism on Saturday morning. The baptism itself was a welcoming into God’s family where God can hardly wait to shower his love upon us. There were five children in total being baptized, two of whom were babies. But there were also family members present in all sizes and of different ages. Their presence made me realize how much we need the love of our family. From grandma and grandpa to the two-year old who fell asleep on his father’s shoulder, all were present to love and support the child being baptized. It was a beautiful testimony to family.

The love and encouragement within our school family was so clearly evident in the preparations leading up to the school auction and dinner dance, as well as at the event itself. Our children watch our commitment to Saint Raphael School and begin to understand the love behind their parents’ desire for an education here. Our school family extends to those whose children graduated long ago and who continue to come to our events and generously give to the school. The auction event was a beautiful testimony to the love and support of our school family.

Mother Teresa was so right about the recipe for world peace; it all begins at home, in the family. I try to encourage parents to spend time nurturing the love and encouragement that will help your child grow confident in his/her ability to “set the world on fire!” I will be the first to admit that parenting is hard and, in the face of today’s technology, it is harder than ever. But Mother Teresa also said a family must pray together, knowing that God’s love and encouragement can help a family grow in love even when faced with challenges.

Thank you to the many hands that helped make the auction dinner a success! All the proceeds of the auction go back into enriching your child’s educational experience. I thank you all for generously giving your time, talent, and treasure.

May God continue to bless our school family and our individual families at home!

Lydia Collins, Principal
