St. Richard parishioners give generously of their time in every aspect of parish life. Many members give their time to visit shut-ins, feed families in time of crisis, build houses with Habitat for Humanity and work at the new gift shop at the office. These are just a few services that our parish family donate their time to support. Through these ministries, our church members discover Christ in the service of others.
“The soul who blesses will prosper, whoever satisfies others will also be satisfied.” Proverbs 11:25
The pool of talent at St. Richard Church is full and deep. Our parishioners share their gifts through choir, Sunday school teaching, flower arranging, fund raising, cooking, lector ministry, Eucharistic ministry, and the gift of wisdom. The talents that are shared by our parishioners make our church rich in culture and diversity. God calls us to give our gifts; when we answer that call, we make the parish a better place to see the love of Christ.
“Now Christ’s body is yourselves, each of you with a part to play in the whole.” 1 Corinthians 12:27
