Welcome Newly Baptized Children

The Saint Raphael Parish Community joyfully welcomes and congratulates the fourteen children from the Hispanic community who were Baptized, Confirmed and celebrated their First Communion this past Easter. The children, their Sponsors and their families celebrated at the Easter Vigil after participating in a two year journey through the RCIA adapted for children. The Church welcomes children beyond the age of reason, who are unbaptized, to celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation through the RCIA process. May the Holy Spirit continue to inspire and guide these newest full members of our faith community.
