In compliance with the new face-covering mandate of Gov. Walz (Emergency Executive Order 20-81) please wear a face covering inside the buildings of the Church of St. Raphael.  Those exempt are children under the age of two years old, and individuals with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that makes it unreasonable for maintaining a face covering. Face coverings may be temporarily removed during the Mass by the reader (when proclaiming selections of Sacred Scripture from the lectionary), the priest celebrating Mass at the altar or giving the homily, and the cantor chanting/singing from choir loft.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION UPDATE:  The Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is now available to committed adorers only at this time, and only for their committed hour(s).  The Adoration Chapel door may only be entered by using the keypad code. Do NOT let anyone else in the chapel - they must have the entry code themselves. Capacity is set at two non-related people OR one family in the Adoration Chapel per scheduled hour. Adorers need to adhere to their scheduled hour(s) only. Your cooperation and adherence to these guidelines allows us to keep the Adoration Chapel open.  As we currently have hours with no scheduled adorer, Adoration will be in front of the Tabernacle where the Blessed Sacrament will be reposed. Every hour must be covered with at least one, and preferably two committed adorers before the Blessed Sacrament can be exposed.  For a current schedule of Open Adoration Hours, please click HERE  Please contact Sharon Hedman 763-315-0202 for more information about adoration, or Char Vecellio 651-336-6630 to commit to an hour of prayer each week in the Adoration Chapel.

HELP NEEDED:  We are in need of volunteers to help with ushering at Mass.  Following new protocols, volunteers must be no older than 65 years of age.  If you are interested in helping to volunteer as an usher, please sign up here:

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra has a Concert Library where you can listen to concerts for Free.
