Welcome to St. Raphael Catholic Church

Welcome to St. Raphael Church! We are a Roman Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, serving Catholics in the Goleta Valley since 1896. The Angel Raphael brought healing to all he encountered.  May Raphael carry God's spiritual healing to this community and your soul.  We are a welcoming Catholic community called by God to live out the message of Christ in love and service to all people. Email us at raphstgo@yahoo.com.

    Congratulations to Mary "Maria" L. Romero! On July 9, 2018 she will celebrate 30 years on staff at St. Raphael Church. We would like to thank Maria for her many years of dedicated service to this parish. Maria, this community is grateful for your hard work and faithful commitment to our Lord. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with us! May our gracious God continue to bless you in your ministry and always.
