Pastor's Welcome

Dear Friends of St. Andrew's,


From the founding of our Parish in 1958, we have grown and developed with Sierra Vista - as partners in building up this great community we call home. 


Over the decades, we sought to be active participants in every aspect of community life. We believe that serving the common good and making this city a place where people come first, where the least and most easily-overlooked are served and cared for, and where the quality of life is enhanced for all our fellow citizens, is an essential witness to our faith.


We hope our parish church is a place where all experience the Presence of God and the welcome of God's People. We pray that its beauty will speak a wordless invitation to those who are seeking, those who are wearied by life's burdens and those who are drawn to lift their hearts in prayer.


We thank God for giving us this opportunity to extend His blessings and to share our church and campus facilities with the Sierra Vista community.


The pulse of St. Andrew's is reflected through our ministries and individual parishoner efforts.  I hope to highlight these achievements and bring focus to upcoming events in the article following this message.


Yours because His,

Fr. Greg Adolf


Hello from Sr. Maria Stella!

Did You Know...?


...that next Sunday, 29 May, is one of the really BIG events in our Parish?

The Feast of Corpus Christi is celebrated with special joy and solemnity at St. Andrew’s, and especially since our new church was dedicated on the Feast of Corpus Christi  in 2006 – ten years ago!

Each year since, the Corpus Christi Procession has grown – and the highlight is the Procession around the block – from the main entrance of the church along North Avenue and then into the Divine Mercy Chapel for Benediction and Adoration!

Since this Procession symbolizes our Lord’s command, “to go out into all the world and proclaim the Good News”(Matthew 28:19), we invite all of the ministries, apostolates and Prayer Groups in our Parish to take part in the Procession!

We also invite our parishioners who were born in or raised in other cultures, to proudly wear national dress or costume and walk in the Procession, to represent “all nations” walking in the light of Christ!

All of our new First Communicants are invited to walk in the Procession, wearing their First Communion finery! (If you have roses blooming now, please bring petals for the children to shower before Him!)

All of those who were Baptized and Confirmed at the Easter Vigil are invited to walk in the Procession as a statement of their Faith in the Gift of the Eucharist!

Those who were Confirmed last month are invited to walk in the Procession, as a sign of the ‘missionary’ Spirit they have received!

The Procession and Benediction is our way of celebrating the Gift of the Eucharist and proclaiming the Presence of the Lord in our world!

No matter what Mass you will attend this weekend, please plan on taking part in the Procession at 11:00 NEXT Sunday morning – (immediately following the 10:00 AM Mass) – the whole celebration is about a half-hour, a very small amount of time to thank our Lord for the gift of Himself!

Joining us for the Sunday Masses next week will be our own Missionary to Haiti, Joan Martin! There will be a Second Collection to support Joan’s ministry in the Diocese of Port-au-Pais, - the NW corner of Haiti!!




This past week, we received $130.00 in new donations to our Annual Catholic Appeal – supporting the 26 ministries (including Seminarian education) of our Diocese! We are now at 18% in Parishioner support! Please consider making a donation of ANY amount – and together with your fellow Parishioners support OUR Diocese!
