OUR HISTORY

Saint Richard Catholic School opened in 1953 with the establishment of Saint Richard Parish. The original building consisted of four classrooms, a cafeteria, administrative offices, and an auditorium/gymnasium that also served as the church building until the present church was completed in 1967. Originally, three nuns from the Sisters of Mercy taught grades one through five and a lay teacher taught Kindergarten. Throughout the years, enrollment increased, and the school expanded. Saint Richard Catholic School completed an extensive renovation in 2010 and our colorful classrooms were designed to further enhance the educational experience of our students. Today our school has over 25 classrooms, a library, a cafeteria, administrative offices, an art room, a music room, a state-of-the-art STREAM Lab and an interactive Makers Space. A multipurpose building that includes a gymnasium and three rooms for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, built by Saint Richard Church, is also available for school activities. 

PRAYER OF SAINT RICHARD

Thanks be to you, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly, day by day.
Amen.
