Environmentally Friendly "front yard" at St. Richard's

Rollins Student to Plan for a more Environmentally Friendly “front yard”  at St. Richard’s

My name is Tracey Comazzi. I am a junior at Hamilton Holt School, Rollins College majoring in Environmental Studies and Sustainable Urbanism. I chose Hamilton Holt School because I feel this major, and the four pillars of Rollins’ mission: Global Citizenship, Responsible Leadership, Meaningful Lives, and Productive Careers, will prepare me well for my future endeavors. The school also offers valuable classes that are not taught anywhere else such as Dr. Leslie Poole’s “Women and the Environment” class which is truly empowering. Read more>>>

prayer tree title copy

When at St. Richard’s Church or passing by on the way to your everyday activities, visit our “Prayer Tree” on the front lawn of the Church near the sacristy door. Step under the tree canopy, open the prayer tree box and write your thoughts, wishes and prayers on the enclosed white card. Slip the white card in the zip lock plastic sleeve being careful to seal the zip lock sleeve to protect your prayer from the weather and then hang it on the “Prayer Tree”.  It has been said, prayers hung on a prayer tree will stay in place for years to come despite stormy weather conditions.

We especially invite you to bring the children of St. Richard’s as well as the surrounding area to the tree for prayer and reflection. The right side of the tree has a low area where the children can hang their prayers. Our “prayer tree” provides all of us the opportunity to express ourselves in a heartfelt and unique way.

special prayer042820
May we who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable. May those who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent. May those who have the flexibility to care for our children when schools close remember those who have no options. May we who have to cancel a trip remember those who have no safe place to go. May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all. May those who settle for quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love during this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us find ways to be the loving embrace to God and our neighbor. Amen.
Prayer by Cameron Wiggins Bellm


Welcome to St. Richard's Episcopal Church!
All are welcome at the table of God
Every man woman and child.
For Christ brings peace to all,
Tearing down every hostile wall.
So that the many may become one,
One heart, one family, one new humanity.
For God who is love, and Christ who is all and in all
Show no partiality and make no distinction.
So neither race nor class, gender nor sexuality,
Politics nor religion, personality nor nationality,
Count for us, or against us.
The light of Christ enlightens all:
Christ the prisoner and the naked,
Christ the hungry and the sick,
Christ the thirsty and the stranger,
Christ the other.
May God’s spirit hover over our chaos,
Our hatred and our indifference.
Descend in our hearts with love and pleasure.
Blow us out into the world to listen and serve.
And set us ablaze to forgive and reconcile.
For all are welcome at the table of God,
Every man, woman and child.
Welcome to St. Richard’s Episcopal Church!!!
