Community Life


As Catholics, we are called into community—to share our faith with one another, to pray and work together, and to support each other along the way. The following ministries represent some of the ways that the community of Saint Raphael Parish comes together in friendship and service to one another.

Contact Committee

The Contact Committee is a group of parishioners helping parishioners with simple practical needs. Members provide rides to church, doctor appointments, grocery shopping, and help with errands. Participants can help as often as their own schedule allows. The committee also hosts a luncheon for volunteers and their “clients” three times a year. If you are in need of assistance or want to help, please call!
