Featured Ministry: Respect Life Committee
“Whatever you did for one of these least brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me.” Matthew 25:40
A dedicated group of individuals who are concerned with promoting the sanctity of life. We seek to provide opportunities to successfully teach that all life is sacred from conception to natural death. The Respect Life Ministry increases parish awareness of pro-life issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and capital punishment. Through prayer and activities, outreach to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies and those who are suffering from the effects of abortion, the Respect Life ministry strives to be a visible reminder of the preciousness of each life.
In observance of the 45th Anniversary of Roe v Wade, the 1973 US Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, the Respect Life Committee of St. Raphael-Holy Angels Parish invites you to an EVENING OF PRAYER on Monday, January 22nd 6:30 pm Mass in St. Raphael Church followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, recitation of the Rosary, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. Since 1973 more than 59 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion in the US. Join us in praying for an end to abortion and for the respect and protection of all human life at every stage. Respect Life materials and light refreshments will be available in the Narthex.

Social Concerns Ministry
Our January Keep Warm Bingo for the residents of Hamilton Grove Healthcare was a big success thanks to the efforts of many parishioners. We were blessed with 11 volunteers, who braved the frigid weather outside. The residents loved the afghans and lap robes (most of which were handmade by Lorraine Luizzia, Marian Goliszewski, and Ann Costa) and the other donated “warm” items. It was a heart-warming night
Food Pantry Ministry
