Welcome from Fr. Paul Turner, Parish Priest


We serve firstly, our parishioners, then the wider Catholic and Christian public in the Diocese. Recently we have celebrated a monthly Mass in the Syro-Malabar rite, and Fr Antoni Prosowicz celebrates Mass in Polish at 12 noon, at St Richard's church on Sundays. (Zapraszam serdecznie na Msze w jezyku polskim w Chichester, w kazda niedziele o godzinie 12.00 ks.)

The weekly newsletter for St Richard’s Parish (with Our Lady of the Assumption and St Peter’s Parish), gives up-to-date Mass times and parish news.  Mass times can also be found using the links on the front page to any of the three communities. 

The site reflects the variety of Parish life: celebrations, events, pastoral life, personalities, youth activities, history and virtual tours of the three churches as well as a section on our mission work.

We include many photographs, working strictly to rules laid down by the Data Protection Act regarding privacy, and we protect the interests of young people by following the code prescribed by the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer.
