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.
