Event Theme Song Race Along   by Aly Aleigha

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts" 

Colossians 3:15 

Faster than the Pastor is a PRIMARY SPONSOR & Event Director for the St Raphaels Catholic church festival. Providing our passion and expertise for private hire.

....blessed to have yet another God Breathed event!

FTTP - St Raphaels is different from our traditional FTTP events. St Raphael's provides the event swag and Faster than the Pastor provides the execution of what our participants experience as another professional, faith filled event!

ALL PROCEEDS generated from St Raphael's event will benefit the           church / school's efforts to make it a strong pillar of their community for years to come!

In 2017, ALL were Faster than their Pastor, Fr. Rudolph - THANK YOU for being a gracious host and present spirit - we look forward to another wonderful event racing with Principal Mr. Ballinger!

Event distance in 2018 is based on Colossians 3:15 - making the course an excellent distance, 3.15 miles, to walk / jog / run & PRAY!!!  


In addition to the main event, St Raphael's includes a Little Lambs Mad Dash. A playful obstacle course for kids to run through, jump over, crawl under and giggle!  We send groups off similar aged kids through the course led by older "kids" in waves to ensure their safety!  Playful, fun - faith in ACTION!
