Stewardship: Build My Church
Please spend some time in prayer to reflect upon how your gifts and talents might be used to enhance the ministries of evangelization, love and service here at St. Richard Parish. You can bring your completed intention form with you to Mass and put it in the collection basket. Then, the collection basket is brought into the Sanctuary, so that the gift we make of time-talent-treasure can be joined to the offering that Jesus makes of Himself to our Heavenly Father.

Autumn Prayer

God of all creation,
you give us the gift of seasons to mark our journey through time.
The season of autumn, with its change of colors and falling
leaves, reminds us that sometimes things must die and fall away for new life to arise.
Such is the message of the cross —
that through death to self we find life in all its richness.
In those moments when we experience setbacks for failures,
help us to remember that you are with us always,
and that there is no failure or sin your love cannot heal.
Help us to trust in you and in your promise of new life.

Peter Jarret, C.S.C.

Prayer of St. Richard
