Our Parish Vision and Mission

Love, Peace and Joy!


"Our parish is a community of the People of God joined together by our common faith in Jesus Christ as expressed through our baptismal commitment. While our parish is rooted in a particular locality, we also recognize that we belong to the Archdiocese of Boston and through the Archdiocese to the Universal Church. That is why our parish of St. Richard is called to be the center and source of our faith and it's development, an extended family that is to be marked by a sense of belonging, a desire for participation, a need for commitment and a spirit of WELCOME. We celebrate all of this when we gather at the Eucharistic table of the Lord each Sunday.


As we journey together let us all pray that we will continue to deepen our dedication to and support of the members of the People of God." - Father Bruce

Our Faith

What does it mean to be Catholic?

People have chosen to enter the Catholic Church for various reasons.  Members of the Church have different understandings of what makes them Catholic or why they are Catholic.  However, there is a common thread that binds all Catholics together.  Catholics belong to a Christ-centered faith community that views Jesus Christ as the foundation.  Catholics share Jesus’ vision and model their lives after Jesus’ example of love.  Catholics are called to care for one another and to use their unique gifts and talents for the good of the community and the world.    Read more...

During October, as in all of Ordinary Time, the Liturgy does not focus on one particular mystery of Christ, but views the mystery of Christ in all its aspects. We follow the life of Christ through the Gospels, and focus on the teachings and parables of Jesus and what it means for each of us to be a follower of Christ. All the Gospels for the Sundays in October are taken from the Gospel of St. Luke.  


Oct. 2nd: Jesus said, "Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate."


Oct. 9th: "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."  


Oct. 16th: "For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."


Oct. 23rd: This Gospel relates the story of Jesus and Bartimaeus, the blind man.


Oct. 30th: The Gospel relates the story of Jesus meeting with Zacchaeus.
