Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming Committee’s goal is to reach out to new members of the St. Raphael the Archangel to welcome. We assist parish staff in hosting new parishioners’ gatherings by providing and serving food and babysitting during the event. Contact Toni Evans at 502-489-7563 or Susan Meyer at sha08@bellsouth.net or 454-5806.

Bereavement 

The Bereavement Committee strives to reach out to those members of the parish who have experienced the death of a loved one. A team prepares food for the bereaved family and takes it to the funeral home during the time of visitation. At times, the family may have a special request and the Committee makes every effort to accommodate that request. Contact Abbie Creed at 454-5077 or abbiecreed19@gmail.com .
