BAA IN-PEW APPEAL BEGINS – Please Bring in Your Pledges Now

The Bishops Annual Appeal (BAA) serves over 30 ministries. Bishop Zarama has asked St. Raphael to raise $305,000 toward the overall goal. If you have not already contributed or pledged, you may do so by placing your pledge envelope that you have received at home or that you can find in the pew into the collection baskets. Our thanks to Laura Gerlach, lifelong St. Raphael parishioner and president of the Newman Center at UNC-Chapel Hill, for speaking at all Masses on January 27-28 about her experience with campus ministry, one of the beneficiaries. Donations can also be made online at:
