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.

Eucharistic Minister Formation
Every two years, the policy of the Diocese of Toledo is that all Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are to receive ongoing formation and be re-commissioned. All Eucharistic Ministers are required to attend one of the formation sessions scheduled for Tuesday April 25th at 7 pm or Sunday April 30th at 2pm in church. Father Jeff Walker, from Saint Rose Parish in Perrysburg will lead the presentation. In addition some practical points will be reviewed. The Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion must be persons whose good qualities of Christian life, faith and morals serve as an example to others. In addition they should have a devotion to the Eucharist and show great reverence toward this greatest of sacraments.
