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 St. Andrew’s is part of a ‘consortium’ of local Christian churches looking at preserving Huachuca Oaks Camp (in Hereford) for use by the Community?

 

Huachuca Oaks Camp has for the past 40 years served as a Christian camp for youth groups. Last year, the Phoenix-based Baptist organization which owns the Camp, put it up for sale. Several developers are looking at the Camp for demolition and sub-division for homes.

 

Pastors and Lay-Leaders who form the Pastors’ Discovery Forum, (our local Christian-action group, to which St. Andrew’s belongs), raised the possibility of a new, independent 501-C3 (non-profit) purchasing the Camp and keeping it open as an asset for the local Christian community.

 

Our Youth Minister, Bill Polakowski, was asked to be a member of the ‘Action Team’- called the “516 Foundation”- looking at the possibilities.

 

This Camp would not be competition for our own La Purisima Retreat Center, but rather complimenting and providing additional recreation resources. (Huachuca Oaks Camp has a swimming pool and developed ball fields – again, catering to Youth Groups.)

 

St. Andrew’s was asked by the “516 Foundation” (the Action Team acting on behalf of the local churches) to contribute to a fund to provide ‘earnest money’ for a down-payment, should the organization in Phoenix accept their bid.

 

The Parish/Finance Council voted to donate $5000 from our “Building Our Church Fund” to match the donations of several other churches. (Remember that the “Building Our Church Fund” is not simply for maintenance and up-grades to our own Parish campuses, but also to support Christian missions – at home and abroad!)  IF the bid is accepted, then the “516 Foundation” will begin actively raising the money through Grants and donations.  The whole process will be lengthy.

 

IF the bid is not accepted by the Phoenix organization, then the money we have advanced as part of the ‘earnest money’ will be returned to St. Andrew’s.

 

If you have any other questions or are interested in helping with this project to benefit the Youth of our entire Community, please contact Youth Minister Bill Polakowski!!

 

Thank you for your continuing generosity and your ability to see the “bigger picture of ministry” beyond our Parish boundaries!

“So often we have the experience and miss the meaning. Afterwards we know the hollowness and disappointment at what was merely said or done in external signs, that did not connect us with their underlying realities. This the sad result of being unprepared, of being lost in the superficial. But once we have found true relationship with God at depth, everything that happens to us is drawn into a meaningful pattern. It is only necessary for us to prepare our hearts – and we are prepared for everything!”

                                         Fr. John Main, O.S.B. (1926-1982) –from Monastery without Walls
