May God's Grace Be With You
Parish News - September 2019
Grand Annual - 2019
The Summer months of rest, relaxation, vacation, and family outdoor activities
have given us a new perspective on the sacredness of life, and the need to
protect and promote the best parts of our life as a Parish Family. Each day we
are given the opportunity to view the “Bigger Picture”, and to see firsthand the
ACTIVE LOVING PRESENCE OF JESUS IN OUR LIVES, helping and
As the Parish family of St. Richard, we bring our hopes and dreams, our gains
and losses, our joys and sorrows, our whole life experience, to JESUS who
loves us. His activity in our lives just takes an acknowledgment of the reality
and a grateful heart. He renews us and gifts us with life, when no one and
nothing else can.
It is with all of this in mind, as a Family of Faith, that I ask again this year for
your help in meeting our financial obligations. All that we are called to do
cannot be done without your financial help and participation. Like last year, we
are predicting a deficit in our operating budget. Like last year, with your
generous help, we will overcome the deficit.
We completely depend on your support given to the Grand Annual Fund. Your
decision to contribute to this annual fund allows us to meet our Parish
obligations, and to share Christ in our world. Please help us meet our GOAL
OF $100,000.00 AGAIN THIS YEAR. Please pray over your decision and ask
the Lord for help in making a positive difference in your Parish Life.
I am personally asking for your generous help during these challenging times.
Together, as a family of faith, we will have a huge positive impact on our world
Prayers and Blessings always,

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
