Rake A Thon

October 29, 2022

The St Raphael School had a wonderful day for its annual service project/fundraiser the Rake A Thon.  Evangelists Phil and Sharon were ready with medals, rosaries, pamphlets, and donated Catholic books when rakers returned to the school for a soup and hot dog lunch.

Many children took one or more medals on chains and rosaries.  Parents, too, took items and a few chose books.  Phil had a conversation with a dad who is a convert from Lutheranism and another with a woman who was happy to converse in her native Spanish.  The second grader teacher, who took medals/chains for her class last year, took medals and chains for her class again.  Her husband stopped by, picked up a book, and mentioned he stopped by our booth at the festival.

Thank you, God, for a nice weather and good turnout.  May the sacramentals given out today increase the faith of those who received them.
