Michael A. Richards
My name is Michael A. Richards and by trade, I am the Information Technology Manager at SofTech Group, Inc located in Lowell, MA., and an Adjunct Faculty Member at the University of Massachusetts Lowell where I teach Shell Programming and UNIX/Linux System's Administration for the Division of Online and Continuing Education.
I am an active member of Saint Christopher Parish in Nashua, NH and for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester, I was privileged to serve on the Diocesan Pastoral Council, and I am currently serving on the Diocesan Finance Council and the advisory board for Parable Magazine.
I maintain the website and IT infrastructure for St Christopher's and you may see me taking photographs for many of the major masses at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Manchester, NH.
I have been happily married to my wife Andrea since 1987, and without her my life would not be complete. We have two wonderful children, Nicholas and Dominic.
I am an avid photographer who enjoys sharing my photographs of family, friends, nature, religious events, travel, food, and sporting events. You can find many photographs on my Facebook page , on Google photos and Flickr.
In November 2016, Andrea and I went on a Pilgrimage to Itay with the Diocesan Choir. It was the trip of a lifetime. While she was singing at the Consitory and Papal Mass, I was photographing the services with the press, and then we went on to tour Assisi and Florence. I have created a Collection of photo albums from the trip, you can view them here or by clicking on the photo below
