Building Community and Creating Memories

A number of special events are held throughout the academic year to build community and celebrate the special place that is Saint Raphael Catholic School. We warmly invite you to join us for these memorable occasions.

Below are just a few of the popular events our school hosts annually. For a complete list of upcoming events, please see the school calendar.

Grandparents Day, October 12, 2018

We love our grandparents and what better way to show our appreciation than with a special morning just for them! Grandparents have the opportunity to attend Mass followed by light refreshments with their grandchildren and a short program.

 SRCS Auction, November 10, 2018

The ever-popular auction brings together our school community for an evening of fun, friendship, and fundraising. Each year the theme changes but the merriment and excitement remain the same. It’s always a memorable event to celebrate our students and support our school.

Veterans Day, November 2018

This year marks the second year of hosting the wildly successful 3-on-3 basketball tournament. Parents, students, teachers, alumni, and friends meet up for a night of fun, low-stakes competition while enjoying pizza and soft drinks. Additional activities and entertainment are provided for small children.

Veterans from all branches of the military are invited to attend a morning honoring their service to our country. Guests attend a reception hosted by members of the student council followed by an all-school assembly where students have the opportunity to ask questions and visit with our veterans.

Ryan O’Connell Memorial Golf Tournament, North Ridge Country Club – May 6, 2019


A consistently sold-out event, the golf tournament is held in memory of Ryan O’Connell, a third-grade student at our school who passed in 2000 after a brief illness. The tournament supports the scholarship named in Ryan’s memory to assist school families experiencing financial hardships.
