Welcome to St. Richard Parish

First Friday Eucharistic Adoration
October 2nd - 3rd
“Let us ask ourselves this evening, adoring the Christ truly present in the Eucharist: do I let myself be transformed by Him? Do I let the Lord who gives Himself to me, guide me to come out more and more from my little fence, to get out and be not afraid to give, to share, to love Him and others?”

Adoration will be held in church this Friday, Oct. 2 following the 8:15 am Mass and will continue until 8:00 am Saturday morning. After 12:00 noon, please use the back church door facing the upper parking lot.

Prayer for Students

Lord our God,
in your wisdom and love
you surround us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your spirit upon these students
and fill them with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you,
the source of all knowledge.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
