Message from the Pastor

Welcome to our Website!

Dear Friends in Christ,

Welcome to the website for Saint Richard Catholic Parish in Swanton, Ohio. We hope that you find this website useful in getting to know our congregation and our school community. We, the members of St. Richard, love the Lord Jesus Christ, His Holy Catholic Church, our parish, and our local community. As a parish, we value the Sacraments as our greatest treasure, and we are committed to being a people of prayer, formed in Gospel values, and active in serving our neighbors through works of mercy to those in need. If you are able to visit us in person, we are pleased to have you join us for worship or fellowship.

Sincerely in Faith,

Fr. Adam Hertzfeld
