Our parish building need updating and repair. Priorities include repairing the front steps to our church and the doors of the church, improving the quality of our courtyard, installing new railings, and tuckpointing. All upgrades will protect our parishioners, staff, and visitors from natural elements, save our Parish on upkeep costs, reduce the risk of unexpected damages, and reinforce the structural stability of our Parish building. Making the necessary repairs will allow us to continue to be a vibrant beacon of God’s Word and to grow our mission and ministry.
Our worship space is the heart of our parish. This campaign will allow us to restore the original beauty of the space and provide a beautiful house of prayer for the next generation of our parish family. Planned renovations include refurbishing the altar, the tabernacle, the ambo, the ambry for the Holy Oils, and repairing our organ.
To recognize, honor, and bolster our outreach tradition, St. Richard will establish a fund to support families in need in Racine. This initiative will supplement our regular support to other local charities and institutions focused on the poor and marginalized.
