RESTORATION PROJECT


Great progress was made during 2009 in restoring the exterior of St. Raphael's.  Below are some photos charting the work which has resulted in revealing a gleaming church.  Thank you again Alexander Raphael for building our church in 1848.  And thank you also Father Vincent Flynn for working so hard to make this happen.  We thank Catholics and non Catholics alike who took an interest in the restoration and provided advice and moral support.  We thank God that He made available the resources to carry out the work - just in time.
