Parish Pastoral Ministries

Chapel of the Air

" With Praise, Study and Prayer shall our Temple be built."  For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. (2 Cor 5:1)

The Chapel of the Air is a spiritual meeting place that you can visit in prayer any time of the day or night and experience the peace and love of God. 

It is also the intercessory prayer ministry of our parish.  Prayer requests are received reverently and in confidence.  May we pray with you?  Send all prayer requests to the parish office.

Prison Ministries

Since 1987, Bishop Bill has served as a volunteer chaplain at the Orange County Florida Jail, in cooperation with Orange County Jail Ministry, providing Catholic pastoral care to those inmates who request it.  We minister to any inmates who request our services.  They do not have to be Catholic.  Good Samaritan Fellowship is the prison ministry of St. Raphael Archangel Parish.  We attempt to provide ministry and other transitional services to inmates who have been released, to facilitate their reintegration back into society.  Contact Bishop Bill at the parish office if you know of an inmate who desires Catholic pastoral services.

Hospital and Nursing Home Visits

Bishop Bill regularly visits area hospitals, nursing homes, and those sick and homebound, to bring the Sacraments and Catholic pastoral care to those in need.  If you would like a pastoral visitation, contact the parish office to schedule a date and time.  We attempt to meet all requests promptly and appreciate your patience.

Pastoral Counseling

Bishop Bill is available by appointment for those who may feel the need to talk to a priest in confidence and in private.  Private Sacrament of Confession is also available.  Sometimes talking to a priest about your concerns can be a great unburdening relief.  Contact the parish office.

Other Pastoral Services

Catholic weddings, funerals, baptisms, home, car, and pet blessings, sick visitation, prayer visitation, pastoral counseling, and various blessings are all available by appointment.  Please contact the parish office.
