About Us

New Beginnings meets weekly on Tuesday Evenings, 7:30 - 9:00pm
at the St. Raphael Parish Campus

Most meetings are held in the activity center on the lower level of the parish building. Our meeting location in the facility does change on occasion. Notices of room changes will be posted on the door. Parking is available in the lot behind the church and school. After parking, enter the building through the large set of glass doors at the center of the complex. The stairs to the lower level are on the left just after you enter the building. Once downstairs, you will be greeted by members at the welcoming table.
