Relief Efforts for the People of Nepal
Donation throught the parish
On the morning of April 25, 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, toppling buildings and homes, causing widespread panic, and claiming thousands of lives. And, this past Tuesday morning, Nepal was struck again by yet another major earthquake. Catholic Relief Services is the official humanitarian agency of the Catholic Community in the United States and is already responding to the urgent needs for shelter, water and food in Nepal. For more information, you can go to www.crs.org.
To assist in the relief efforts, we put in the pews last weekend envelopes for a special collection. If you would like to make a donation through the parish: Please make your check payable to: St. Richard Church. Put in the memo line: CRS – Nepal. In this way, St. Richard can expedite your donation. Thank You!

Volunteers To Help Water
St. Richard Garden Club
It is that time of year when the bushes and flowers are blooming! And thanks to the Garden Club and our Maintenance Crew, who removed & trimmed some bushes, the church grounds are lovely! In order to keep all the plants healthy & beautiful we are in need of Volunteers To Help Water. This entails being on a two person watering team and coming to Church to water twice a month, during the warm summer months.You do not have to be a gardener - just love the outdoors and keeping the grounds looking fresh. If you have questions or want to help, contact Carol at 330-3947 See you in the garden!

A Prayer for Memorial Day

Heavenly Father,

On this Memorial Day, we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom. May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bless the families of our fallen troops, and fill their homes and their lives with Your strength and peace.

In union with people of goodwill of every nation, embolden us to answer the call to work for peace and justice, and thus, seek an end to violence and conflict around the globe.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

St. Richard Prayer
