Be Kind and Merciful
The annual appeal is vitally important to not only the diocese, but also to our parish as well. The CMAA supports 30 ministries that benefit every parish and allow us all to Be Kind and Merciful to the most vulnerable in our community.  Our parish goal for 2020 is $87,200 and 70 percent of any amount we raise over our goal will be returned to us.

Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nati
onwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards.  Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive.
