Special Annual Events

There are several events that St. Richard Catholic Church offers throughout the year, such as:

Pentecost Party-- We celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church the weekend of Pentecost.   We typically do this as a pot-luck event.  Everyone is invited to this annual event and encouraged to bring a dish to share.

Hunger Banquet--An evening of good food, good entertainment and outstanding silent auction items.  Held in November.  Free admission, however a free will offering is collected.  All proceeds from the evening are given to organizations that feed the hungry in our city, state, and world.

Friendship Boat--Spend a fun evening on a big houseboat out on the Reservoir--music, food and fellowship!  This is an event that we don't typically do every year.  Check out the bulletin/website to see if it is scheduled this year.

Supper and Substance--This is a fun, social evening for married couples with a short program on enriching your marriage.

4th of July Parish Picnic--Join in the parish celebration with food and fellowship and, of course, fireworks on the parish football field at dusk.   Best Fireworks in town - guaranteed!!!

Special Kids Day Golf Tournament - Once a year, in October, St. Richard celebrates Special Kids Day with a golf tournament at Deerfield Golf Course. The unique gifts of the children are recognized and applauded, and the community participates a day full of fun, and meaningful fundraising.
