  • St. Richard's Fill the Freezer Project

    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.

  • Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study

    The Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study will resume our study of Acts for Everyone, Part Two: The New Testament for Everyone by N.T. Wright on Wednesday, January 11 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in the Ridley Room. We will break on March 15 for Spring Break, and conclude our study on March 29th. For more information please contact Beverly Bordman at beverly.bordman@gmail.com.


    The mysterious presence of Jesus haunts the whole story of Acts. Jesus is announced as King and Lord, not as an increasingly distant memory but as a living and powerful reality, a person who can be known and loved, obeyed and followed, a person who continues to act within the real world. We call the book "The Acts of the Apostles," but we should think of it as "The Acts of Jesus (II)." These studies from Tom Wright help us to do so, and to see how Jesus' acts through the apostles inform our acts today.

    We love the idea of deepening our relationship with God, but we might need a little help. Come learn how through the practice of Centering Prayer.  Centering Prayer is an ancient method of Christian prayer which prepares us to receive the gift of God's presence, traditionally called contemplative prayer.  Every Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. in the Church Nave.

  • Episcopal Veterans Fellowship

    Episcopal Veterans Fellowship is a community of veterans assisting each other home from war through confidential, non-judgmental fellowship addressing the soul repair stemming from moral injury, post-traumatic stress and survivor guilt issues. Veteran service to one another leading towards reconciliation at the Lord’s altar and transition to civilian life is our focus.  The EVF model is fashioned after the Hospitallers of St. Martin of Tours (a patron saint of warriors) in their receiving the Crusaders home from war in the Eleventh Century. St. Richard’s EVF meets in the Cranmer Room on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of the month immediately following the 7 pm Eucharist Service - approximately 7:30 pm.  Any local area veteran is welcome.
