For nearly 200 years, Saint Raphael Church and Mission San Rafael Arcangel have served as significant historical, cultural and spiritual centers in our community. Today, our parish community continues this tradition as we come together regularly to pray, worship, learn, share and serve as disciples of Christ. We encourage you to browse our website to learn more about who we are as a faith community and how you can be a part of all that we do!
