help our youth grow in faith
As a Catholic high school in the Diocese of Providence and a Lasallian school in the worldwide network of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Saint Raphael Academy has an active campus ministry program that supports our values of faith, service and community. The Academy community works in unison with our families to help our youth grow in faith. Saint Raphael Academy invites and challenges students to make his or her faith a living reality, preparing them for leadership and service in the church and the world.
Saint Raphael Academy Campus Ministry was established to ensure that students develop a personal understanding of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of how one’s faith can be lived out within the community of the church, along with an understanding of the implications of their faith regarding social responsibility. Each person is responsible for developing his or her relationship with the Lord, and therefore, students are encouraged to choose service projects that are in keeping with our core values and personally important to them.
In all programming, Campus Ministry fosters in students a lifetime commitment to acting on their personal responsibility for bringing about the reign of God.
We pray that the seeds planted at Saint Raphael Academy will continue to grow, as our graduates become women and men who understand and live out their vocation in life.
