wElCOME to our Youth MInistry Page!


We believe each student is vitally important to this community and the Lord

is drawing us each closer throughout our experiences together! 


St. Richards Youth Ministry...


Strives "to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 


Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."  Ephesians 4:12-16

Serve Together

We are committed to serving in the community with a variety of local partners such

We also partner with Honduras Good Works and look forward to serving together!


Volunteer at St. Richard's

  Our youth regularly offer up their musical talents and acolyte on Sundays. If you would like to play an instrument in our church services or sing with our choir, email Scott McNulty.

If you would like to acolyte, email Cindy Smith.


Youth help with a variety of church events throughout the year, including monthly church luncheons, at the Pumpkin Patch and Fest, Pancake Supper and the awesome Annual Youth Sunday Service! 


Community Connections

Throughout the year we gather with churches from around the Round Rock/Georgetown area for retreats and community service together. Last year we helped with Fields of Faith and Discipleship Now weekend. 


Confirmation, Reception & Reaffirmation

Each year we offer classes for students and adults who wish to be confirmed and received in the Episcopal Church, as well as those who would like to reaffirm their faith. These are all rooted in reaffirming the baptismal covenant and we invite you to learn more about this opportunity.


Here is a Video from Bishop Michael Curry about Confirmation!

Happening Retreats

The Happening Experience

"A Happening is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Through this experience, Happening encourages participation in one's own parish and youth group. Is Christianity relevant to youth today? Can it penetrate the many areas of school life? Can it transform the world and keep up with changing times? The Happening movement thinks so..."


For questions regarding Happening, contact Stephanie Townes, Missioner for Congregational Vitality: Youth and Young Adults.

Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven”

Matthew 5:14-16


We learn more about our faith each week and hope you will join us on this journey!
