The Feast of St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael, Archangels

St. Raphael parish celebrates the Feast of St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael, Archangels. From Catholicculture.org: The liturgy celebrates the feast of these three archangels who are venerated in the tradition of the Church. Michael (Who is like God?) was the archangel who fought against Satan and all his evil angels, defending all the friends of God. He is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the devil. Gabriel (Strength of God) announced to Zachariah the forthcoming birth of John the Baptist, and to Mary, the birth of Jesus. His greeting to the Virgin, "Hail, full of grace," is one of the most familiar and frequent prayers of the Christian people. Raphael (Medicine of God) is the archangel who took care of Tobias on his journey.

New flooring project begins in the church

The project began on Thursday to install new flooring in the church. Pews and the old carpeting are being removed. New carpeting and tile will be installed, and then the pews will be put back. The project will be done in two stages, half the church at a time. Folding chairs will be used on the weekends while the pews are out. | Photos by Jane Winstead
