The Ruins Was Declared A National Historic Site In 1999
In 1994 an independent body of local Glengarrians, The Friends of the Ruins St. Raphaels Inc was formed as a non-profit body dedicated solely to raising funds to stabilize the walls of the Ruins in order that they may be a permanent monument to the people of one of the founding settlements of the Canadian nation.
The stabilization goal has been reached.

The televised Mass is never a substitute . . . for the Sunday Mass celebrated within a parish faith community each week. However, televising the Mass is a ministry by which the Church uses modern technology to bring the Lord’s healing and comfort to those who cannot physically participate in the liturgical life of the local Church . . .
Letter From Father Michal
Dear Parishioners of Saint Raphael’s Church,Thank you for welcoming me as your new Administrator to your extraordinary church and beautiful community. I look forward to a warm and enduring relationship with all of you in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. I have some large shoes to fill with the passing of Father Dennis Cooney and hope that I will not disappoint.
First, a word of introduction. My name is Father Michal Szyszka. I am from Poland and my last name, “Szyszka”, means “pinecone.” If you have a problem saying my last name you can call me Fr. Michal or Fr. Pinecone. I came to the U.S. in 2006 and this was a day when my big dream came true. I studied in the Seminary in Orchard Lake, Michigan. I was ordained a priest on May 21, 2011 at the Cathedral in Venice by Bishop Frank Dewane. My last four years I spent in Bradenton, at Ss. Peter and Paul Church with a wonderful Pastor, Father Mark Heuberger. And here am I, at Saint Raphel Catholic Church. What an honor. Yes, indeed, it is an honor for me to be your Administrator.
Let God’s mission be our mission. And together, let us do our very best to be part of that mission, building up God’s Kingdom here in this great community.
I thank God for all of you in my prayers and I do need your prayers, help and support. May the peace and grace of God be with you. God bless you!
Saint Raphael, pray for us! Amen.Yours in Christ,

Act Of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there, and I unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you.
