Have your recipes been lost?

If you have already sent in your recipe for the St. Raphael 50th Anniversary Cookbook, it might be a good idea to log into the cookbook Web site to make sure your recipes are there. Some recipes have been lost.

Here's how to check: Go to Use your name as the contributor. The group logon is ccwladies. The password is mmyra

Recipes are still needed. If you have not sent in your recipe, you may still do so. You can send in multiple recipes, so if you've already sent your in but think of another one, send it, too. You can type it right into the database using the link above.

If you can't type your contribution, typists are available. Just drop your recipe in the box in the Narthex.

"I just want to thank all of you wonderful CCW ladies," said Christine Winstead, chairman of the 50th Anniversary Cookbook committee. "We are going to have an awesome cookbook for St. Raphael parish."

Christmas in July!

Santa Breakfast 12.12.10

Did you know that it is Christmas in July? Well, that's what I have been hearing on the TV commercials lately. With all this talk about Christmas in July, it has put me in the mood to go through all those photos that I took in December 2010. So, now I am sharing them with you on this last day in July. I hope you make the time to look at them and maybe you might see a photo of yourself or a loved one. I hope you enjoy looking at all the photos and the different events. It might bring back memories or maybe if you were not able to attend, this will give you an idea of what you missed.

Photos by Jane Winstead
It's nearly time for transitional Deacon Victor Amorose to leave St. Raphael parish at the end of his summer assignment. He'll be returning to St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach for his final year of formation. Jane Winstead assembled this retrospective of Deacon Victor's time at St. Raphael.

The eyes of our hearts

Video by Louise Barrett
This song was composed by 8th grade graduating students, Heather, Gabby, Bella, Alexa, Amanda, Katie and Katherine in honor of their choir director, Becky, after the discovery that Becky's infant son, Gabe, was blind.

Our hope is that we will all see with the eyes of our hearts, especially that we are God's beloved children, some with physical sight, and some without physical sight.

Gabe is shown at his baptism, back in December 2010, as he becomes a child of God and part of God's family, and receives the spiritual sight that will reveal to him the Light of the World.

Congratulations to the graduating 8th graders on a BEAUTIFUL song.
