The community at St. Paul's Parish was excited to attend the first Mass in its new church May 4.

Archbishop J. Michael Miller, pastor Msgr. Dennis Luterbach, and others broke ground on the new project back in the fall of 2017, after the old church was deemed far too small for the needs of the neighbourhood.

The official blessing and dedication of the new Richmond church will be held June 18.
