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
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...

On a sunny Spring Sunday, St Richard’s welcomed its first BOAC – Blessing of Antique and Special Interest Cars. With over shiny 50 autos and their enthusiast owners, a music vibe provided by DJ Bill Moore, and both cash and non perishable donations to the Danvers People to People Food Pantry, the day was a rousing success. Fr. Bruce welcomed all to our first and hopefully annual event and gave special blessings to all owners and their autos. Three cars were chosen as winners for Oldest (Peter Kesting's 1931 Ford Model A), People's Choice (Jack Sands' 1952 Chevy Bel Air Coupe), and Pastor’s Choice (George Delaney's '58 Chevy Pickup) from amongst a very competitive field. We hope to add this to our events in the coming years – with the hope that we can welcome more cars and enthusiasts to our day! Thank you to all who participated – we had a great time!
