Also at St Richard's:
Every month, usually at 3.30pm on the first Sunday of the month, St Richard’s hosts an Indian Family Prayer Meeting, including Mass in the Syro-Malabar rite, attended by members of our community from Kerala, India.
The Syro-Malabar Church is one of the Eastern churches communities in full communion with Rome, yet with striking differences in the style and content of their liturgy.
Contact Mathew via the Parish Office for information:
