Volunteer Activities


Volunteers are an important part of the schools program, they provide a valuable service. Our school could not offer the quality of education, service, and sense of community that it does without parental involvement as volunteers, committee members, and supporters.  We additionally welcome grandparents, aunts, uncles and godparents to also volunteer and support our children.  All jobs are important, and the students are delighted to know that their parents are actively involved in the school. There are so many events planned throughout the year for volunteers to help at St. Raphael.  Included in these activities are:

  • Halloween Festival
  • Readers for Library
