Jesus speaks in the Temple today. People are listening to Him, His words are captivating the people. Even now His authority speaks to us, He speaks to our soul the “synagogue” is our soul and this is the place God wants to be. He wants to know us, He wants to speak to us. So let us open our hearts and soul to our Lord.
Fr. Joachim’s final weekday Mass and celebration for him.
Today St. Andrew Parish celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with much joy and enthusiasm! At the evening Mass our teens led the procession carrying an image of Our Lady through the streets before entering the Church. As is our tradition here at St. Andrew, all children, teens, and young adults were invited to the sanctuary for a special blessing as Fr. Paul, Fr. Corral, Fr. Joachim, and Deacon Fausto asked that Our Lady of Guadalupe bless, guide and protect the present and future of our Church. They were each given a holy card of Our Lady with a quote from Archbishop Gomez’s 2017 City of Saints homily. Que Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

Parishioners and friends filled St. Andrew Church on Thanksgiving morning to celebrate the Holy Mass and offer to express their gratitude for God's gifts and blessings. Joining Fr. Paul was retired Archbishop of Jordan, Maroun Lahham, Associate Pastors Fr. Jose and Fr. Joachim, Deacon Fausto and our seminarian Luis Gerardo.
Fr. Paul Sustayta, our pastor, shared a beautiful story about how God also uses us, His hands, to bring about blessings in the lives of those around us.
Following Holy Communion, Fr. Paul invited all those with baskets of bread and wine to come forward for a special blessing. The sanctuary was overflowing with people.
May we all give thanks to Almighty God on this Thanksgiving Day!
St. Andrew Teens thank Archbishop Gomez for his support and encouragement of the "Young Church" in the Archdiocese and throughout the country!
