May God's Grace Be With You
Please note that St. Richard Parish is returning to FULL MASS SCHEDULE.
We have made great effort to do the right things to keep us all safe during this pandemic, and we keep a close ear to what the Town of Danvers and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts gives us for guidelines.
With all of this in mind, we have returned to the normal Mass Schedule; a Vigil Mass on Saturday @ 4:30pm, and on Sunday @ 7:30am, 9:00am, and 11:00am. We will continue to employ social distancing (limiting attendance to 150) and suggest the use of masks.
We will keep you informed of any need to change or suspend this schedule. Let’s pray for one another, for our parish, and for the safety of all and the defeat of Covid.

OUR PARISH MISSION & VISION
"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
