Ring the Bells for a Cause: Charity Event
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Did you know we have Children's Liturgy of the Word during the 9:30am & 11:00am Mass? As of right now, we are currently in Summer Break, but we encourage your participation from September-June.
During this time we would like to wish everyone a Happy Summer. We give 'Thanks' to God for the beautiful weather He has blessed us with. We want to remind everyone that St. Andrew has a link that allows Online Contributions (link). We kindly ask that you continue to contribute to our Tithing due to expenses staying the same. Please remember that our church is mainly supported by the donations of our parishioners. These donations not only help sustain the church, but it also our ministries to continue growing. Most importantly we must remember that anything given with love and faith will be rewarded by God. Have a Blessed Summer.

Together in Mission Campaign Launch “Be the Light of Christ”
Next weekend, the Together in Mission annual appeal will launch. This is a great opportunity to put your love into action. At every Mass we will hear from an insightful speaker that will tell us about the importance of sharing our gifts with others. We are in this together—the mission of helping our fellow brothers and sister and we are all asked to share the light of Christ with others. For those of you that have made gifts in the past, be on the lookout for a special mailing from our Archdiocesan leaders asking you to renew your gift.
Please mail in your gift directly to the Together in Mission office to ensure that you’re counted among those that have answered this vital call. Our parish has been tasked with raising $93,200. I am confident that each of you will prayerfully consider sharing the abundant gifts that God has shared with each of us.
Family Promise St Andrew Committee
Do you feel a calling to serve homeless families in our community? Would you like more information about how to be part of St. Andrew Parish's outreach to homeless families?
The Gospel of Matthew reminds us: "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." (Mt, 25,40). As a parish community, we reflect these holy words in our mission statement when together we declare our dedication to connect our faith in Jesus Christ with service to others.
The newly formed Family Promise Ministry of St. Andrew Church seeks to make this statement a reality through the provision of temporary overnight shelter to vulnerable homeless families right here, in our parish facilities.
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.
