Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you. – Luke 6:38
Stewardship: Time, Talent & Treasure
The Faith Community of St. Raphael is alive with Christ, a community rooted in faith, celebrating a Liturgy of Life. We are prayerfully responsive to the Spirit of the Living Gospel, focused on discipleship brought to life with prayer, celebrating the Sunday Eucharist, and by serving others. We live each day in gratitude for all the blessings that God has given to us.
We believe that living as disciples is rewarding. Making time in a busy life for prayer, study, worship, service and friendship fills our lives with the presence of God. The same approach to a balanced life teaches us to share our gifts and guides our work.
Time & Talent
There are opportunities in this parish at every level of involvement. You may attend a class or program, share your talents with the parish from time to time, work on an ongoing scheduled basis, or take on a parish leadership role. You are valued in the life of this parish.
There are many ways to get involved at St. Raphael Catholic Church. Visit our Ministry Index tab for a complete listing of all our volunteer opportunities.
Scripture teaches us to give to God our “first fruits” or the first portion. Your financial contribution to your parish is vital to support all operations of the Parish, including liturgies, catechesis and outreach.
As a tithing parish, we also contribute 5% of our Sunday collection to community outreach and emergency assistance to individuals.
Thanks to parishioner generosity, we are able to continue our mission of bringing God’s kingdom to earth.
