St. Raphael School is a Catholic community that encourages spiritual, academic, physical, social, and emotional growth in all its members. The main focus is the integration of religious truth and values with life-long learning.
In 1967, a pre-school began in the parish hall. In 1980, through the efforts of some very dedicated parents, the formation of the elementary school was initiated with the addition of two kindergartens and a first grade. With an increasing enrollment and a need for a Catholic School on the east side of El Paso, the new school building was opened in 1986. St. Raphael School is a faith-centered community that encourages spiritual, academic, physical, social, and emotional growth in all its members. The main focus is the integration of religious truth and values with life-long learning.
Endowment funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry/parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.
As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowment funds.

Monthly giving can be a powerful way to provide sustainable, long-term support for our Catholic community. As little as $20 (66 cents a day) can make a difference for the people and parishes that are helped by the ministries and charities of the Diocese of El Paso.
Make a planned gift through a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan, or other planned giving instrument.
