When the Lord saw her, he was moved with pity for her and said to her, "Do not weep." He stepped forward and touched the coffin; at this the bearers halted, and he said, "Young man, I tell you, arise!"

Luke 7:13-14

Dear Saint Raphael Parents and Friends,

“Do not weep.” I remember my mother’s funeral and how difficult it was to stop weeping. In the midst of that sorrow it was so hard to feel God’s presence. How often do we wish Jesus was near when we lose a loved one or feel terribly lost and alone? Yet, the point of this Gospel story is the power of Jesus to bring life into our darkness.

We tell our children not to cry when they are alone and afraid. We fill their darkness with love and they find comfort in our arms. How much more powerful to teach them that Jesus’ love is always there for them. From overwhelming anxiety to crushed feelings from a classmate’s words, we need to point our children towards a Love that comforts all.

Picture Day is tomorrow, Wednesday, September 19! All students will have their picture taken for student ID’s, even if you choose not to buy a package. School sweaters are to be worn for the picture.

The students have completed the first round of STAR testing. The results will be shared with you at Parent-Teacher Conferences, which we have planned for October 4th (a 12:15 dismissal) and October 5th (no school). We are holding conferences early in the year to give you a chance to see your child’s progress so far, to review STAR testing data, and to have a plan moving forward. Please be sure that you have contacted your homeroom teacher to set up a time to meet.

Do not underestimate the power of God to know our deepest sorrow and pain. He offers the comfort of His love. We only need to allow Him to fold us into his loving arms.

Lydia Collins, Principal
