"Being in this World as in a Great Temple"

Laudato Si and St. Raphaela: we are called to reverence the unity of life

Dear Friends,

Pope Francis says in Laudato Si: "The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable development, for we know that things can change."

This November, St. Raphaela Center would like to invite you to join us as we gather as a community of faith to focus and reflect on the call to 'ecological conversion'. In a two-part program, we'll discuss how we might cultivate the personal and communal conversion necessary to live this summons, caring for the living world as a neighbor. Please join us on November 3, 2019 for our program, An Urgent Summon: CHOOSE LIFE (Deut. 30)

Also, join us on Sunday, November 17th, for a special showing of the movie, HOME, with aerial footage from around the world showing the condition of our planet, the beauty and devastation, and areas being renewed. Narrated by Glenn Close. (1:30-3:30)

Be an agent of change in Adoration. As we adore Christ in the Eucharist, we unite with Christ in the suffering of people and Mother Earth and all of Creation.  If you have any intentions you would like us to pray with you, please feel free to contact us and your intentions will be included in our daily adoration. As always, we invite you to share this mission with us and join us in our daily Adoration:

  • Every morning (except Sunday) from 9:00am until 11:00am
  • Sunday from 10:00am to 12:00pm
  • Monday and Wednesday from 7:00pm to 9:00pm
  • Tuesday, Thursday - Sunday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Come see how the Eucharist can become a source of transformation and sustenance in your life ... for the life of the world!

With love,
Sr. Lyan Tri, acj
Director, St. Raphaela Center
