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

Our Faith

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...

Meditation is the practice of using a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing your mind on an object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.

 

Meditation has been practiced since antiquity in numerous religious traditions and beliefs, often as part of the path toward liberation, awakening and Nirvana. Since the 19th century, it has spread from its origins to other cultures where it is commonly practiced in private and business life.

 

Two options for your daily meditation within our faith are offered below:

 

Sacred Space  – A website that offers daily scripture-based prayer.  It also contains a section on “praying with the Pope” which offers Catholics the opportunity to join with the Pope and other Catholics throughout the world in his prayer intentions for the month.

 

Minute Meditations  – A short thought-provoking daily meditation.
