Religious Education (C.C.D.)

We are blessed to have one of the most active and vibrant Religious Education programs in the Archdiocese. Though an age appropriate curriculum, we invite our young parishioners to acquaint themselves with the teachings of the Church and learn how they can live a life centered on the teachings of our faith.

 

Our youth Religious Education Program, directed by Sandra Ciruolo, enables and supports wonderfully dedicated teachers and adults leaders to present, encourage, challenge, and comfort our youth as they learn to live a life centered on worship, service, community, and faith. Our program enables parents to share more actively in the religious education on their children, modeling faith life and sharing with youth in ministries of service, in worship, and in the community we share at St. Richard’s.

 

In our High School Religious Education and Confirmation program, we prepare our students to learn the lessons of the Church as they transition to becoming your Catholic adults through the sacrament of Confirmation. Sandra Ciruolo, Colleen Newbury and their team of teachers give of themselves as they offer clear and meaningful lessons to live a value-centered life as young Catholic adults.

Liturgy Music Director

Brenda Myers 978-774-7575

We are very fortunate to offer a diverse and vibrant music program through the talent of our Music Director, and all of our talented music enthusiasts. Our music team plans appropriate music, develops artistic skills, and encourages parishioners to share in the spirit of our music program. Whether it be with instrumental or choral performances, our Music Ministry reflects a diversity of spirit and interest that reflects our parish.

 

R.C.I.A.: (Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Victoria Woodley and Larry Kucy – Co-Directors 978-774-7575

Having a vibrant RCIA program is a pride to our entire parish. As a growing and sought after program, we are pleased to offer the opportunity for adults and children to grow in their understanding of our faith and to enter more fully into the life of the Church. Some folks, for one reason or another, may not have experienced all of the Sacraments of Initiation, and our team of dedicated volunteers, led by Victoria and Larry, offers a program of growth and faith transition. We are very proud of this team of leaders who are present for these inquirers and walk with candidates on their pilgrimage of faith.
