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
Pastor

Bienvenido

Queridos amigos de San Andrés,

Desde la Fundación de nuestra parroquia en 1958, hemos crecido y desarrollado con Sierra Vista - como socios en la construcción de esta gran comunidad que llamamos hogar.

Durante las décadas, intentamos ser participantes activos en todos los aspectos de la vida comunitaria. Creemos que servir al bien común y haciendo de esta ciudad un lugar donde la gente viene primera, donde el menos y la mayoría pasa por alto fácilmente son servidos y atendidos, y donde la calidad de vida es mayor para todos nuestros conciudadanos, es un testimonio esencial de nuestra fe.

Esperamos que nuestra parroquia es un lugar donde toda experiencia de la presencia de Dios y la acogida del pueblo de Dios. Oramos para que su belleza hablará una invitación sin palabras a aquellos que buscan, los que están cansado por las cargas de la vida y quienes son atraídos a elevar sus corazones en oración.

Damos gracias a Dios por darnos esta oportunidad para extender sus bendiciones y a compartir nuestras instalaciones iglesia y escuela con la comunidad de Sierra Vista.

El pulso de San Andrés se refleja a través de nuestros ministerios y esfuerzos individuales parishoner.  Espero destacar estos logros y enfoque a próximos eventos en el artículo siguiente este mensaje.

Tuyo porque su,

El padre Greg Adolf
Pastor

Did You Know...?

...that Lent has three great ‘disciplines’ or formation plans, which are each critically important and inter-related?

They are, of course, Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving!

 

These are not, of course, simply “seasonal activities,” but are integral to the growth and the maturation of every disciple of the Lord. But we do bring a special emphasis to these actions during Lent!

 

It is our Lord Himself who commends this to us, when He says: When you pray. . .When you fast. . .When you give alms. . .(Matthew 6). There is no “IF” about it!

 

Our Lord simply tells us that when we do these things, we should “do them from the heart” and not simply to ‘check boxes’ or to impress the neighbors!

 

There are so many extra prayer opportunities – the Stations of the Cross on Fridays (or anytime that you want to come and pray the Way), the 40-Hours’ Adoration every Thursday and Friday in the Divine Mercy Chapel, the Men’s Rosary on Tuesday evenings, the Men’s Adoration on Thursday mornings – check the bulletin and make one of these your special prayer-time in Lent!

 

Disciplining our appetites – not simply ‘dieting’ or ‘giving something up’ – but looking at how much our cravings and our distractions control our lives, is a painful, but life-giving exercise. As Blessed Pope Paul VI said, “Learning to live simply, so that others may simply live!” Our fasting must always have a direct ‘overflow’ in almsgiving – sharing with others.

 

Consider making the Annual Catholic Appeal your expression of almsgiving this Lent – blessing others across our Diocese through the 26 ministries that the Appeal supports!

 

Finally, some GREAT news!

Our Parish has started a new electronic outreach initiative called St. Andrew’s Flocknote    to reach out through text and e-mail to those who have registered with our Parish.                   We have partnered with Flocknote and Bishop Robert Barron’s “Word on Fire” ministry to bring you daily Lenten reflections by text and e-mail.  

(See the instructions in the bulletin on how to sign up, so that you can experience this new electronic connection with the Parish!)

We have made a tremendous start to our Parish participation in the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal! We are now at 81% of our Parish Goal, with 35% participation of our Parishioners and Families! Please consider your gift – for any amount, as we are really hoping to have 100% Participation in the Appeal!   Thank you so much for your wonderful response so far!

 

“The Way of the Cross is not only a great testimony to an inner depth and maturity, but it is in fact a school for interiority and consolation. It is also a school for the examination of conscience, for conversion, for inner transformation and compassion – not as sentimentality, as a mere feeling, but as a disturbing experience that knocks on the door of my heart, that obliges me to know myself and to become a better person.”

Pope Benedict XVI
