adult formation on Sundays

Our Sunday School hour starts at 9:15 Sunday mornings. Currently, the following courses are on offer: 


Dethroning Mammon Book Study with Father Zac

Sundays at 9:15 a.m.

Designed for study in the weeks of Lent leading up to Easter, Dethroning Mammon reflects on the impact of our own attitudes, and of the pressures that surround us, on how we handle the power of money. Each chapter centers on one event within the last week of Jesus' life, and invites us to reflect on what it means to be a Christian in our complex world. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has selected this as the 2017 Lent Book for the whole Anglican Communion, so join Fr. Zac and thousands of other Anglicans around the world in this compelling book study. Sunday mornings @ 9:15 in Fr. Zac's Study. 


Bible Study for Sunday's Scriptures

Would you like to learn more about the Bible stories we listen to in church? Join adults of all ages as we gather to hear, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the great big over-arching story of the Bible delivered weekly through our class. Every Sunday is a complete lesson so join us any Sunday you are able. Join our leader, Karen Burnup and others every Sunday in the Cranmer Room at 9:15 a.m.


Moms' Group

Come to share and connect with other moms in a place of fellowship, grace, and support, and hopefully "fill your cup" in the process. Starting Sunday, March 19th, we will begin a new book: Out of the Spin Cycle- Devotions to Lighten Your Mother Load by Jen Hatmaker. Join us for a new devotion each week. And remember, reading the book is never required for any of our meetings! Discussions will be set up to benefit all. Please contact Amy Nordhausen for more information: ameliaclaire@hotmail.com


Rector's Forum ~ Faithful Disasters with Fr. Stuart

Sundays at 9:15 a.m.

Join us in our Faithful Disasters Study as we explore the lives of five historical Anglicans and how they kept Lent. Begins Sundays in Lent at 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall Meeting Room 1.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers

Lay Eucharistic Ministers and Lector assist our clergy in worship services by reading the lessons, leading the prayers, and administering the chalice. Some also assist by taking communion to our members who are home-bound, sick, or in nursing homes.

Young Adults

Young Adults at St. Richard's gather periodically to share food, drink, and fellowship. Whether it's happy hour at The Brass Tap, an afternoon down at Barton Springs, or dinner in someone's house, this is an opportunity to get to know the other grad students and young professionals you see across the congregation on Sunday mornings.


For details on our next gathering, please email Zac at zac.koons@saintrichards.org


Community of hope

The Community of Hope is a group of committed lay people who have been trained as Eucharistic Visitors. Their heart is for those who have a difficult time making it to church on Sunday. They visit those parishioners that are home-bound, in hospitals or other private medical facilities. The caregiver visits, prays and shares the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist with the care-receiver and their family.

missional communities

Missional Communities are like house groups with an evangelical edge. They meet in coffeeshops, pubs, bowling alleys or other public settings for good ol’ fashioned fellowship—non-threatening spaces to which we can invite our non-Christian friends. 


St. Richard's is starting a new missional community in Hutto. If you're in that area and you're interested in taking part, please be in touch with David Todd at dtodd@suddenlink.net. 

Supper clubs

We help people have a great time getting to know each other over fine food in each other’s homes. There's Supper Clubs of all different kinds, divided up by age, neighborhood, and availability. We'll help find one for you. We are firmly convinced that such fun times deepen and sweeten connections among new friends at St. Richard’s. 


Contact: Becca Johnson, (512) 428-6549 or granbee@austin.rr.com

Episcopal Veterans fellowship

A missional community for veterans and their family members in which veterans’ combat experiences are reconciled and more fully integrated into life. Offering fellowship and support through groups which meet regularly, relationships are strengthened and people experience God’s grace in deep and abiding ways. In addition to the weekly meetings, the core group of the EVF has been traveling to conduct Pilgrimages of Remembrance and Reconciliation.
