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
Pastor

Did You Know...?

 

...that our Annual Catholic Appeal is off to a TREMENDOUS beginning?


Last Saturday evening, the Knights of Columbus, Bishop Salpointe Council #4584, hosted over 400 of us for the 26th year to a wonderful banquet at the newly-refurbished Columbian Hall!


Celebrating the Ordination of Fr. Rob Neske to the Priesthood, Bishop Kicanas joined us in praising God for His many gifts to us as a Parish. Our Bishop spoke movingly of the needs of our Diocesan Church and the many ways in which the Annual Catholic Appeal touches lives with the mercy of God. Bishop Kicanas also spoke about the “Cathedral Square Project” and the renovation of the Diocesan buildings around the Cathedral, the “Mother Church of the Diocese of Tucson”.


We listened, we talked, we cheered, we talked, we enjoyed the wonderful dinner, listened and (some) danced to the music of  parishioner Joe Anton’s Desert Swing Band, we talked, we marveled at the energy of the Life Teens and Confirmation students who waited the tables, and the great team of Knights of Columbus who ran the serving lines. We cheered for those who won the door prizes, and “connected” with fellow parishioners in an all together wonderful evening of fun!


And when the evening concluded, parishioners donated/pledged $56,000 – which is 44% of our Parish Goal! That is the strongest “launch” so far in the past 26 years!


(After last Sunday’s ACA envelopes were counted, we are now at a pledge total of $70,800 – which is 55% of our Parish Goal – all in this first week!!!)


IF you have not yet done so, please consider making your pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal this week! With such a great start, we are well on our way – but that means that each one will have to make a contribution and show your support for our 26 Diocese-wide ministries! EVERY contribution of WHATEVER AMOUNT matters – please make your pledge/donation as soon as possible!

 

Many have asked, and the answer is YES, Father Rob has been assigned to St. Andrew’s as a Parochial Vicar (Associate Priest) and he will be fully engaged in ministry here. And the Bishop has asked Father Rob to give as much assistance as possible to Our Lady of  the Mountains Parish, Holy Family Parish (Fort Huachuca) and All Saints’ School!


A very “full plate” – and our Father Rob has most graciously and generously said “YES!”


Please pray for him, as he begins his Priestly ministry among us – and pray for Vocations!
