We are a church on a mission to discover God's grace, change our lives and change the world.
Greetings St. Richard’s Community!
Vestry Nominations: We have four vestry members finishing their three year terms as of the fourth Sunday of January. Thank you to Burr Anderson, Felix Rodriguez, Amy Dalton and Stephen O’Connell for their service.

GOD IN THE TIME OF COVID
Last year it was difficult at times to see the hand of God in events. In December He showed me His love and power, even in tough circumstances....

VESTRY ELECTIONS 2021
One more week to throw your name in the hat for Vestry of St. Richard's. 
We have five Vestry candidates running for four seats this year. The Vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property.  The basic responsibilities of the Vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.  Please contact Alison, rector@strichards.org if you wish to run for the Vestry for a three year term. 
STIMULUS CHECKS TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY
Are you wondering how best to use your $600 stimulus check? Consider a new year's donation to a worthwhile non-profit.
