Featured Ministry: Filipino Community
St. Raphael-Holy Angels is a welcoming, multicultural community. A vibrant part of our parish life is our Filipino community. The community gathers for liturgical and cultural events throughout the year. The group is connected with a network of other Filipino groups throughout the Diocese of Trenton. One of their initiatives is the Rosary Walk Garden located near the Pope John Paul II Spiritual Center. It was dedicated in October 30, 2016 and quickly became a popular place for those seeking an outdoor haven to contemplate and pray. The Filipino Community spearheaded the fundraising drive to create a place of rest and prayer for all in the parish, a place to gather and venerate the Blessed Mother that also beautified the grounds. They decided on a design which focused on the Cross and the Blessed Mother, reflecting the wish of Father John Chang, the previous pastor. Click here to read more.
This starts with a Holy Mass at 1:30 pm in St. Raphael Church, followed by procession around the neighborhood, and ends with a dinner/dance in the parish center.
This is also a fundraiser of the Filipino Ministry to maintain the Rosary Walk Garden, help the poor in the Philippines, and support other activities of the ministry in the parish.
Event pictures will also be taken by The Monitor.
Congratulations to our CCD students on another successful year! We’d like to thank the parents for all they do to support their children in their religious development. We’d also like to thank our Music Director and Organist, Lori Hoos and Rob MacReynolds, for their involvement in our summer program. Both our summer and traditional programs could not have been possible without the help of our Catechists and Aides! We appreciate the time and talent they bring to our classrooms.
Please prayerfully consider being a Catechist
