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
Abstinence is to be observed on all the Fridays of Lent. On days of abstinence, meat may not be used at all.
Catholics over the age of 18 and up to the beginning of their 60th year are bound to the obligation of fasting. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are the days of fasting. On these days, only one full meal is allowed.
Parish Lenten Seasonal Offering
During Lent, we would like to focus our food donations on the Danvers People to People Food Pantry and ask that each week be dedicated to a certain need as follows:
Feb. 22nd - Week 1 of Lent: Paper Goods (Toilet Tissue, Paper Towels, Facial Tissues, Napkins)
Mar. 1st - Week 2 of Lent: Cereals and Breakfast Foods
Mar. 8th - Week 3 of Lent: Canned Vegetables Can soup, Pasta Sauce

Thank you for your help and support!
The Food Pantry is in need of anything that you can give or happen to bring to Church even if it is not what we noted will be collected during that particular week.
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...
