All women of the parish are invited to join the St. Richard Altar Society, which gathers for the 9:00 a.m. Mass on the second Sunday of each month. Breakfast in Vogel Hall follows the Mass. The Altar Society supports and educates Catholic women in their spirituality, leadership and service to our church and community. This organization also purchases many of the liturgical items needed for the parish which is made possible through fund-raising activities such as bake sales. They also lend support to parish youth through donations and scholarships. Contact: JoAnne Michel at 260-8238.
