Welcome to San Rafael Parish

San Rafael Catholic Church is a welcoming church.  Come and enjoy the beauty of the church itself with the many stained glass windows which trace salvation history and the events in the life of Christ, the Bible and the saints. You will find many educational, fellowship and community service opportunities.  We invite you to participate. Within this website you will find listed the schedule of Masses, other parish liturgies, ministries, groups, and organizations in which you may become involved.

The Diocesan 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal begins February 10-11.  “SHARING GOD’S GIFTS” comes at a time in our society when there are so many needs to be answered that the ACA becomes more important.  As we are well aware the ACA supports many of the ministries of the diocese without which they could not happen: Catholic Charities, Catholic Education, Family Life and Spirituality, Priestly Formation (and thank God our number of seminarians is increasing), ongoing education for priests, retirement care for our priests, ecumenical and interreligious outreach are just a few of the ways that the Church in San Diego reaches out to bring the love of Jesus to our community.  This year our assessment is $108,000 – a hefty sum but one which we can reach IF everyone does his and her part to participate.  If you are proud of being a Catholic show your pride by your participation in the ACA and join the rest of us to make it a success.  By the way, any amount of pledges received after the assessment is returned to the parish to assist us in keeping alive our parish ministries and maintaining our parish life.
