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
St. Richard Parish Song
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...
In the past couple of weeks and in the coming weeks, many of our young parishioners will be graduating from grammar school, high school, colleges and post-graduate schools. We congratulate them on their academic achievements and wish them all the best in their future educational and employment endeavors. We congratulate those parishioners who will graduate from our public elementary and high schools in the area as well as those who have graduated or will graduate from St. Mary of the Annunciation School, St. John’s Prep, Bishop Fenwick High School and The Academy of Penguin Hall.
Congratulations to all!
