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 there are certain signs or symptoms of a ‘healthy Parish’?

 

Among the signs listed are these:

*People are constantly expressing different ideas and attitudes, and they do it right out in the open!

*The Priests and Deacons are always behind in their work!

*The Parish Finance Council is always working to make ends meet, and they are forever giving money away to help others in the wider Church and wider community!

*Often parishioners have to stand in line to be served in the Parish Office, because there are so many people being helped by  the secretaries!

*New groups and ministries keep cropping up and bumping into each other over schedules and activities!

*The choirs are filled with professional musicians and a lot of amateurs; and they enjoy singing together! *There are a lot of  kids, who are noisy and all over the place, including Mass!

*The teenagers like to ‘hang out’ at the church, even when there are no Youth Ministry activities scheduled!

*It’s not always easy to find a parking place on Sunday or a meeting place for your group on a weekday!

*A number of people miss meetings and insist on spending time with their families!

*The electric bill is over budget, and it seems that an awful lot of people have keys and all kinds of groups are coming and going!

*The kneelers are wearing out and there never seem to be enough missalettes!

*The place is full of losers: People who have lost their way. People who have lost their loved ones. People who have lost their perspective. People who know that they can’t make it on their own. People who are also finding their lives in receiving and giving a lot of love  - in Christ!

*With whatever else is going on, everyone knows that JESUS Christ is the Way and the Truth and the Life; and without Him at the Center, they could just as well lock the place up!

 

Do you recognize any of these ‘signs’ happening here at St. Andrew’s and Good Shepherd Mission?

 

If not, please find the place where the Lord wants you to use the unique talents and gifts that He has given to you – and enjoy this Sunday’s “Parish Ministry Fair”, or check out the bulletin or the website for the listing of ministries – YOU are needed to keep this Parish healthy!

* * * * * *

This past week, we received $---------- in new gifts and donations to the “Building Our Church” Fund! Thank you so much for your “extra mile” giving, which allows us to build and maintain a great setting for a healthy Parish to grow!
