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

Estimados amigos de San Andrés,

Desde la fundación de nuestra Parroquia en 1958, hemos crecido y nos hemos desarrollado junto con Sierra Vista construyendo esta gran comunidad la cual llamamos nuestra casa.

A través de las décadas hemos tratado de participar activamente en todos los aspectos, dentro de nuestra comunidad.  Creemos que un testigo esencial de nuestra fe es el servir al bien común y el hacer de esta ciudad un lugar para quienes lo más importante es su gente, donde los más necesitados y los más olvidados son servidos y cuidados, y donde la calidad de vida es mejorada para todos nuestros ciudadanos.

Deseamos que nuestra parroquia sea un lugar donde todos puedan sentir la Presencia de Dios y se sientan bienvenidos como hijos de Él.  Rogamos que su belleza les haga una invitación silenciosa a aquellos quienes están en busca de Dios, a aquellos quienes se encuentran abrumados por los problemas de la vida, y a aquellos quienes han sido llamados a levantar sus almas en oración.

Agradecemos a Dios por darnos esta oportunidad de extender sus bendiciones y de compartir nuestra iglesia y nuestras facilidades con la comunidad de Sierra Vista.

El servicio de San Andrés está reflejado en nuestros ministerios y los esfuerzos individuales de nuestros parroquianos.  Espero que podamos realzar estos logros y llevar enfoque a futuros eventos los cuales mencionamos en el artículo debajo de este mensaje.

 

Suyo en Cristo,

 

Padre Greg Adolf

Pastor

 

St. Andrew’s Church in Tulachan, Nepal
Dear Father, 
Greetings in Jesus’s name! 
Please find attached almost complete and grand looking St. Andrew’s Church in Tulachan. Thank you and St. Andrew’s Parishioners support for this great Church. 
I am going tomorrow to rededicate our Church that was burnt in western Nepal. 
However we are exceeding our budget we need some more money for fencing and furnishings. 
Estimated around 5 to 7 thousand USD. 
Thank you once again for your support.
Yours in Christ!

Did You Know...?

 

...that our three Priests and our three Deacons regard their ministries as ‘missional’ – that is, they are ready to go and serve wherever and whenever needed, not just in our own Parish?

 

Father Rob’s ministry as “contract Chaplain” at Fort Huachuca, assisting the Post Chaplain as needed, in caring for our Catholic servicemen and women, and their families, is a very important “mission” of St. Andrew’s Parish!

 

Fr. Marco’s ministry as Co-Director of the Charismatic Movement in our Diocese, preaching parish missions and celebrating Healing Masses throughout the Diocese, is a very important “mission” of St. Andrew’s Parish!

 

Fr. Greg’s ministry to the Permanent Deacons, through retreats and days of recollection, as well as offering spiritual guidance to Sisters’ Communities, is a very important “mission” of St. Andrew’s Parish.

 

Deacon John Klein, Deacon Lauro Teran, and Deacon Joe Kushner offer ministry to the incarcerated – in the County Jail and Juvenile Detention Center – a vital “mission” of St. Andrew’s Parish. (Our Deacons are also involved in many other outreach ministries!)

 

And YOU, our Parishioners, are very much a part of this ‘missional’ dimension of our Parish, because every Parishioner is called to be part of the Mission of the Church!

 

The Church must be concerned and motivated as much by Mission, as by Maintenance.

 

We certainly have a responsibility to maintain the structures of Faith, the doctrines, and the sacramental life. We have a responsibility, too, to be good stewards of the physical structures and programs of the Parish.

 

AND, (in is not an ‘either/or’, but a ‘both/and’) we must be energized and equipped for Mission, that is, to extend the Good News of the Kingdom everywhere that we can!

 

Finding the right balance between Maintenance and Mission is an on-going concern, and is reflected in deciding where to spend our time and resources. This is true of our families, as well as our Parish!

 

Our Parish is committed to strong Maintenance in all areas of our shared life of Faith. We are always seeking better ways to teach and invite deeper commitment from every Parishioner.

 

We are always exploring ‘best’ measures, not just to preserve but to enhance all that has been handed on to us!

 

AND, we are committed to Mission – open to new opportunities to extend the Good News, whether in Haiti, Ecuador, Nepal, or Kyrgyzstan – and support the global Mission of the Church!

 

Your generosity in supporting both Maintenance and Mission is extraordinary – and is recognized by other Christians!

This past week, we received $521.00 in new gifts and donations to the “Building Our Church Fund”! At the present time, these donations are going toward the remodeling and upgrading of our newly-acquired Convent for our Sisters! (The “Wish List” for our new Convent is included in the bulletin! Thank you for all that you are doing!)

 

 

 

 

“Home and family are the seedbed of culture. The word ‘culture’ is taken from the Latin word ‘cultus’ – meaning worship. Our choice between the worship of the true God and the false gods determines the nature of our culture. It brings us life or death: as a society, as a nation, as a state.”

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.
