Message from the Pastoral Leader…

Welcome to our Website!

Saint Richard Catholic Church is a faith-filled community in Swanton, Ohio. This parish community was formed back in 1893 and continues today to be an alive, active and amazing parish. We number slightly over 650 families and serve the communities of Swanton, Delta and Whitehouse and beyond.
Please join us for worship this weekend. We gather for Mass on Saturday evening at 5pm and Sundays at 8am and 10:30am. Come and experience the hospitality, the hymns and the homilies as we give praise and thanks to God for our many blessings.  
Glory be to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more  than we can ask or imagine.
Enjoy your summer!

Deacon Jerry
