Welcome to

Saint Richard Catholic Church

We, the Catholic Community of St. Richard of Chichester, are called by Baptism to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ to all. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to active evangelization, seeking to make Jesus known and present through our worship, community, formation and service.

Updates from Fr. John

FROM FR. JOHN - 11/23/2020
I received the ‘all clear’ from my doctor today so I’ll be officially off quarantine beginning tomorrow. Regular public masses will resume at 7 am tomorrow morning. Thank you all for your understanding and patience during the past few weeks as I’ve recovered from Covid. Please continue to pray for all those affected by this, and for our healthcare workers. And ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ to all of you as well!
