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 we have a great Parish project planned to celebrate our 60th Anniversary next year?

 

The project is to purchase a Convent for our dear Sisters!

 

For that past two years we have been leasing a house for Sister Joellen and Sister Doris, which is located about a mile from the church. The lease is $1,000 per month, plus utilities.   The Building and Grounds Committee began a search earlier this year, for a property close to the church – for both the convenience of the Sisters and our Maintenance Staff, hopefully within a short walking distance!

 

Realtor Brad Snyder has been a huge help in looking for just the right property – and earlier this month, located a very suitable house – across the street from the church on North Avenue! (The house is currently a ‘rental’ and a family is living there – again, we are going at this pretty slowly and deliberately, and our Sisters – as you would expect – are so good and patient with the process!)

 

We are in the initial stages of this purchase – permission must be secured from the Diocese and inspections conducted – but we are very hopeful that we can raise the funds - $120,000 – and move the Sisters into our new Convent during our 60th Anniversary Year!

 

There will be some additional costs: in needed up-grades, ADA compliance, etc.

 

This is a ‘large ticket’ project, but the proven generosity of our parishioners makes it very ‘do-able’ – and the advantages for the Sisters and the Parish are many!

 

The Parish/Finance Council voted  unanimously, to move ahead with the “Convent Project” and to use the “Building Our Church Fund” envelopes to give our parishioners the opportunity to contribute each month toward the “Convent Project”!

 

We will, of course, keep everyone fully informed at each step of the process!

 

Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this endeavor and that all will happen in His perfect timing!

This past week, we received $146.00 in gifts and donations to the “Building Our Church Fund”! As noted above, the use of these funds will now be directed toward the purchase of the Convent! Thank you, always, for your extraordinary generosity in extending the Kingdom of God
