Garden Club: This group was formed to assist in maintaining and improving our parish grounds so that it is a welcoming and joyful place for our parishioners and visitors. All of the work is performed by dedicated volunteers and through the generosity of donations.

Please remember the Garden Club when dividing your perennials or speciality plants in the spring. Save them for the PLANT SALE.

Ministry of Fun: The Ministry of Fun and Fellowship is a social group for all adults. There are no dues or membership fees. Our purpose is to meet new people and renew old friendships within our parish family. It’s also an opportunity to get to know better the people we serve with in the many ministries of St. Richard Parish. We have four activities a year: a dinner in January, card party in April, potluck in July and Bunco in October. We welcome all adults and are open to new ideas.

Welcoming Committee: This group welcomes new parishioners through cards, calls and a social to meet other parishioners.
