St. Raphael Parish has been serving the parishioners since 1958. The parish is situated in Burlington, ON, south of the Queen Elizabeth Highway, close to Lake Ontario. This is a lively community of faithful parishioners stemming from all types of cultures and ethnicity.
St. Raphael Parish functions with the mission statement, “We, the Catholic faith community, inspired by our patron, St. Raphael, continue the mission of Christ, journeying together in the Reign of God. We are bearers of Good News by welcoming, comforting, healing, encouraging, learning, and prayerfully growing together”.
It is a generous and joyful community that gathers in prayer, welcomes new members to the community, and celebrates diversity. St. Raphael parish stands for the rights of all locally and globally.
St. Raphael Parish’s conference of St. Vincent de Paul, Knights of Columbus, and Catholic Women’s League continues to reach out to the people who are in need. There are two elementary schools, (St. Paul & St. Raphael) under our Parish, and St. Raphael has a shared responsibility of nourishing the students of a high school (Assumption). Until June 2015 it was administered by Franciscans and at present, the Parish is administered by the Fathers of Holy Cross. Our Parish continues in the great tradition of hospitality. Please come and experience the welcome and hospitality for yourselves.
