Saint Raphael Academy Welcome to the Saints family. Welcome home.

SRA's First Grandparents Day a Big Hit

October 23, 2018

Our first Grandparents Day had an overwhelming turnout on Thursday, Oct. 4. More than 230 grandparents (and even a few great-grandparents) and students attended a special Mass, where Principal Dan Richard welcomed our guests and noted the special bond between grandparent and grandchild—and how the best part is spoiling them! Mass ended with the presentation of flowers to all grandparents.

The grandparents and guests were thrilled to have the opportunity to see the school and spend time with their own special Saint. All enjoyed a continental breakfast reception in Alumni Hall and the chance to meet some of their grandchildren’s friends. Families also had a special portrait taken to commemorate the day, and all grandparents will receive a copy. (Parents who are interested in purchasing a photo for themselves may contact Mare Studios at 401-438-1555.)

The Academy hopes to make this an annual event. Enjoy the photo gallery below!
