The parishioners of St. Richard’s, located at 18th and Pollock Streets in South Philadelphia, gathered for the 4:30 Saturday evening vigil Mass Feb. 10 with their pastor, Father Michael J. Reilly, as the celebrant. Founded in 1924, the parish offers Mass each Sunday at 8 and 11:30 a.m. (along with 4:30 p.m. Saturday) at St. Richard church and a 10 a.m. Mass at Holy Spirit Church, a nearby worship site of the parish.
