2018 Annual Pastoral Appeal


  • The Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) supports the many ministries and services of the Diocese provided to the parishes and schools.  This year the Diocese goal is $11,850,000.  The assessment for St. Raphael is $248,612 which represents a less than 2% increase.

  • Blessed are we......  This is a special time for the Diocese of St. Petersburg as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary in gratitude for the past, joy for today, and hope for the future.  Our on going support of APA helps thousands of people through out the Diocese each year.

  • Since 2014, with the support of about 1/3 of our 1600 households, St. Raphael has been able to meet the assessment each year.  Because of your gifts and commitments we have not had to use parish operating funds meet the assessment.  Help us do it again this year by your direct offering to APA.  Donations can be a one time basis or spread over several months via check (envelopes available in the Narthex or monthly envelopes) or electronically thorugh On-Line Giving. St. Raphael Parish Number is 410 - Please make sure any gifts sent to the Diocese display that number.
