High School Youth Ministry
St. Raphael's High School Youth Ministry program offers opportunities for young people in grades 9 - 12 to come together and share experiences of prayer, service, and community-building. Events are created and planned by our 9-member, cross-grade leadership team. We meet regularly on Tuesday nights from 6:30 - 7:30 in the parish rectory to connect, check in, and do homework, and we often have other meeting opportunities throughout the month.

Each summer, the youth of St. Raphael join with youth from St. Francis Episcopal Church in Novato and travel to New Orleans, Louisiana, to rebuild homes destroyed in Hurricane Katrina. Interested youth must be 15 years old by the date of departure, and must submit an application in the Fall before the trip. For more information, please visit our blog at reneworleans.blogspot.com.
