St. Raphael's Chapel situated in the beautiful hamlet of Huccaby on Dartmoor, is a place of peace and tranquillity. Built in 1868 as a combined chapel and schoolroom, it has the distinction of being the only Anglican chapel in the country to be dedicated to the Archangel St. Raphael. His name means 'God's Healing' or 'God has healed' and he was one of the archangels who stood before the throne. He is also known as the patron saint of travellers.
St Raphael’s Snowdrops, 2021. Update!
Although the opportunities to leave home are still strictly limited, (only very local walks, cycles or runs avoiding crossing village boundaries to access green space allowed), God’s creation thrives in other ways. While this year we couldn't offer snowdrops in pots from the Chapel, we offered to reserve bulbs in pots until travel restrictions were lifted. It was a bit of a leap of faith as to whether this would work - but it did!
Thank you to everyone who has made donations - we are very grateful. Next year, we look forward to visitors enjoying the snowdrops in the Chapel grounds and meeting more of you in person.
