• Welcome to St. Raphael Catholic Church in Rockville, MD. 
      Our Pastor, Fr. Meyers, extends a warm greeting to new and old parishioners alike.

      “The Christian message is called the ‘Gospel,’ that is, ‘the good news,’ an announcement of joy for all people; the Church is not a refuge for sad people, the Church is a house of joy.”  
      The Liturgy, is filled with calls to rejoice, to be joyful, in order to prepare us to celebrate the feast of Christmas with renewed exultation.... The joy of the Gospel is not just any kind of joy. It is the joy that comes from knowing that you are welcomed and loved by God.
      - Pope Francis 
      Angelus Third Sunday of Advent 2013.
