The St. Andrew Parish Lenten Theme for this year is; Jesus: The Face of Mercy. During lent, take a moment to recall these words in prayer and as you approach the image displayed on the cross in the Sanctuary. On Ash Wednesday we begin out Lenten journey of fasting, prayer, good works, and repentance. We do these things knowing that our Heavenly Father’s great gift of Mercy and forgiveness awaits all of his children who turn away from sin and seek Jesus: The Face of Mercy.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Paul A. Sustayta
Our Holy Father Pope Francis has enlivened the Church to renew our spirit of evangelization. Through their ministries and education supported by funds provided through Together in Mission, recipient parishes and schools are doing just that, reaching out to their communities and making the message of God’s love known to those around them. The funds we collect will directly benefit more than 500,000 of our Catholic brethren, and ensure our parishes and schools remain open as centers of faith and hope for the communities most in need. Today God calls upon each one of us here to share our gifts with our brothers and sisters in Christ that are in need of them. Through Together in Mission we can share our mighty deeds and give the healing and faith to the communities that simply would not be here without them.
Though our church is large, our strength lies not in our numbers, but in our compassion and ability to respond. Every gift, regardless of the size, matters. What is important is that we give what we can and answer this calling of our faith. Our Parish Goal for 2016 is $92,200. God bless you for your generous response and support.
Beginning March 2016, our parish will have an opportunity to follow Jesus by serving the poor and vulnerable in a practical way. We will be partnering with the Family Promise program to provide temporary housing and other assistance to homeless families in our local region.
WHAT IS FAMILY PROMISE?
There are 178 Family Promise affiliates in 41 states across the country. Family Promise’s mission is “to help homeless children by assisting their families to stay intact and to regain stable housing and employment within a supportive, volunteer-driven community.” Family Promise holds dear the core values of hospitality, empowerment, compassion, mobilizing communities, and hope.
OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SERVE TOGETHER
This is a great opportunity for us as parishioners to serve together. It’s a wonderful way for our families to participate in ministry, instilling in our children the care and respect that God has for the poor and vulnerable. We are also asking that different parish ministries sponsor a day on which to provide meals and other materials or services for the families who will be staying with us. This is a chance to exercise any gifts or talents you might have for the benefit of neighbors who are trying to transition out of a difficult situation.

On Sunday September 13th. Bishop Robert Barron, presided at the 9:30 am mass. It was his first public mass since being consecrated an Auxiliary Bishop by Archbishop Jose Gomez for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels on Tuesday September 8th. It was a great honor to have him with us!
