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

Monsignor John Cusack John Costello Scholarship Awards

Congratulations to our fourteen scholarship winners this year for the golf tournament scholarship given every year to parishioners who actively participate in church and we are moving to the next level of their education experience.


This year we are proud to announce that we as a Parish are awarding over FOURTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS in scholarship to our students. This is an amazing feat for our parish to accomplish on behalf of our youth, and we should be most proud of this fact.


On behalf of our whole parish, I congratulate each of you, our students winners, on your achievements thus far and pray you continue your success in higher education. I also want to congratulate all of the adults in our parish who worked so hard to develop the funding for these scholarships, and the parish as a whole for your wonderful support. This is an amazing accomplishment for our parish, and I am personally most impressed and pleased for all of you.

God Bless,

Fr. Bruce

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...
