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 next Saturday morning is our Training Event for ALL volunteers in our Parish?

 

Beginning at 10:00 in Kino Hall we will welcome all of our wonderful volunteers for the Diocesan Safe Environment Training event: “Promise to Protect”!

 

This training is required for all of our volunteers, and is extremely important, as we continue to commit to the safety of all those we serve – children, teens, vulnerable adults – as part of a nation-wide commitment to provide maximum safe environment!

 

This “Promise to Protect” event is required training and re-training for all volunteers connected in any way with our Parish!

 

Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound, St. Vincent de Paul members, Boy Scout and American Heritage Girls leaders, Catechists, Youth Choir leaders, Edge and Life Teen volunteers – all of us who are volunteering through our Parish to serve the needs of others in a caring, safe manner!

 

This training (re-training) is NOT because of a lack of confidence in our wonderful volunteers, or because ‘the Diocese says we have to do it’!

 

The training actually makes us aware and responsive to any situations in which abuse/neglect might be occurring – and how to take the appropriate steps to address that situation.

 

Over the past few years, since this training became mandatory, several of our Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound were able to recognize two instances of elder abuse/neglect and allow us to respond quickly and appropriately! appropriately! (Anyone is invited to attend this training/retraining, by the way!)

 

The Church has moved far beyond the ‘knee-jerk reaction’ to the threats of being sued for damages, to a place of leadership in establishing clear and effective programs to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone to whom we minister in His Name.

 

Out of one of the most painful and devastating periods of the Church’s history, the Spirit has led us to this place and time – and we are now looked to for leadership in this area!

 

Please call the Office (458-2925) or email our Compliance Officer, Lupita Teran, at lupita@standrewsv.org to confirm your attendance – or to answer any questions that you might have.

 

We are very grateful to Lupita for all of her leadership in this vital area of our Parish’s life!

 

 

 

“The Stranger on the road quotes Scripture to them, then explains it, and then effects the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Only then do they recognize that this Stranger is JESUS, alive and present. How interesting that this encounter, which happens along an ordinary road, and at an ordinary dinner, takes the form of liturgical prayer: proclaiming God’s Word, preaching God’s Word, and bringing about God’s Word in the Sacrament of His risen Body. For JESUS there is no separation between liturgy and life. He is no less Himself walking on the road with struggling, doubtful disciples, than He is in the midst of prayer to the Father. . .”

Fr. Richard Veras

 

 

 

Here's a convenient way to help your church

and ensure your weekly gift is safe and secure. 

Online Giving allows you to make your contribution electronically without the hassle of writing a check or carrying cash.  Your contributions are recorded aiding in yearend tax preparation and reducing parish staff bookkeeping time and effort. 
Wait!  What happens if I go TDY or need to leave the area for a while?  No problem.  You will continue to support St. Andrew's and its ministries no matter where you go.  Your gift is always accounted for even when you are on vacation. 
OK, so, what happens when the offertory plate is passed to me at Mass and I don't place anything in it? 
Good question.  Matthew 6:4 says "...so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." 
We are rapidly becoming a cashless society and Online Giving is the tool we are using today meeting our needs and looking ahead to the future.  We thank you as always for your support of our parish and all of our ministries.
