  • Color: A Three Part Series about Race and Christ's Church

    with Seminarian Korey Wright

    Wednesdays, Jan. 24-Feb. 7, 6-7:30 p.m., Parish Hall, Rm 1

    At 14 I experienced racism for the first time. My grandmother's response to that experience forever changed how I would think, feel, and talk about race. Conversations about race can sometimes be difficult, but they matter. When we talk about race, we are talking about so much more; how we relate to each other, and how we relate to God (the Bible has a lot to say about all that!) Join me Wednesday evenings, January 24 - February 7, 6-7:30 p.m. as we explore how our own stories and the stories in Scripture teach us better ways to share life together. This is a potluck event, so please bring a dish to share.

    Help St. Richard’s show the Lord’s affections to others in Jesus’ name by helping us fill our new Parish Hall freezer! 

    1.  It’s easy. So, take a deep breath, and say a prayer offering your loving work to the Lord and for the benefit of His work in the lives of the recipients of this wonderful meal that you are making.

    2.  Make your casserole or whatever this one dish wonder is. Ready it to be frozen, indicating by way of an attached label or sticker who made what and when, cooking directions for the return of a dish, and so forth.

    3.  Tell Barbara Geiter, our Vestry Member for Pastoral Care at bgeiter143@yahoo.com or (512) 674-5333. When she hears that someone might need a meal, she’ll connect with staff or others who have signed up to distribute the meal. 

    4.  Deliver on Sunday morning, making arrangements with Barbara Geiter.

    * If you want to distribute meals, please let Barbara know that too.

  • Holy Baptism at St. Richard's

    “Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble."

    2018 Dates for Holy Baptism at St. Richard’s

    At times, and due to several personal circumstances, parents and godparents request our clergy to baptize their children on different days and in other locations than what has been published. 

    Unopposed to “private” baptisms and always trusting the work of the Holy Spirit, our Rector considers each of these requests as they are made. 

    The 2018 Preparation for Holy Baptism at St. Richard’s

    To prepare for your Baptism or your child’s Baptism, contact the clergy of St. Richard's at (512) 255-5436. Please submit this form if you are interested in baptism.

    * Please check out our Children, Youth, and Adult pages under the Connect tab at the top of this page for more information on weekly happenings & ministries.
