From Our Pastor

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

Did You Know...?

. . . That through your incredible generosity we have already reached the $25,000 goal to complete Fr. Samuel’s home parish church in Nigeria?

The hope was that we could raise the money over the next couple of months as our ‘thank you’ to Fr. Samuel for his great ministry to us, and, at his request, complete construction of St. Joseph’s Church in Korinya, Nigeria, his home parish! At the Ice Cream Social, hosted by our Knights of Columbus last Sunday evening, over $3,000 was donated to this Mission Project in honor of Fr. Samuel, and the money kept coming in until now – in three weeks -- we have reached the goal! This mission partnership with the wider Church is an important part of our Parish’s commitment to world-wide evangelization, and you, the parishioners, have supported this commitment in so many ways! Each year we choose one or two major Mission Projects – usually in the Third World – to partner there with our fellow Catholics. The impact of this partnership is extraordinary, in providing structures and infrastructure, and by infusing the local parish economy with badly needed funds through these projects! Fr. Samuel’s eloquent thank you for your support for and generosity to the Church in other countries, has been stated many times over the years by those who have benefited from your sense of Mission! Please keep Msgr. Tom Millane in your prayers. Msgr. Tom has been placed in a nursing home due to his memory loss. He is living at Brookdale Tanque Verde, 9050 E. Tanque Verde Rd., Tucson, AZ. 85749 Msgr. Tom was our Pastor from 1975-1980 and is fondly remembered by all of the ‘older-timers’ in our Parish. Perhaps you would consider sending Msgr. Tom a card or note of encouragement/thanks!

Our Bishop Salpointe Council #4584 of the Knights of Columbus has provided our Parish with two back-to-back Ice Cream Socials, as we bid farewell to Fr. Samuel, and tonight, our Seminarian Carlos Nagore! Thank you, Knights (and Ladies!) for making these two events possible! The newly-elected Officers of the Bishop Salpointe Council are: Grand Knight: Tom Felix; Deputy Grand Knight: John Goggin; Chancellor: Michael Schrauth; Warden: Robert Benton; Advocate: Stephen Vukomanovich; Lecturer: Paul McMackin; Treasurer: Shawn Kelley; Recorder: Larry Carter; Financial Secretary: Michael Benton; Trustee: Dale Hammond; Trustee: Michael Zehr; Trustee: Doug Jacques; Inside Guard: Victor Schrauth; Outside Guard: Will Jones; Chaplains: Fr. Rob and Fr. Greg. IF you are not a Knight of Columbus, please consider joining a group of dedicated men who are doing amazing things for our Parish and for our Community!!!

Food For Your Soul

“Remembering and holding on to past grievances works great damage – it is accompanied by anger, fosters sin, and brings hatred for justice. It is a rusty arrow spreading poison in the soul. Be lovers of peace, the most precious treasure that anyone can desire.”

//St. Francis of Paola (1416-1507)

This Week's Catholic Quiz

This week’s Question: “What is the significance of the Birth of John the Baptist celebrated on 24 June?”

The Answer to Last Week’s Question: “What is the difference between ‘repentance’ and ‘contrition’?”

Though often confused, ‘contrition’ means “sorrow for sin” – regret or shame for the evil one has done. It is an awareness of the alienation caused by sin. ‘Repentance’, on the other hand, is the translation of the Greek word metanoia, meaning a basic change in the direction of one’s life. Beyond ‘sorrow for sin’, repentance describes a change of mind, heart and attitude, that transforms our lives by changing the direction of our lives at God’s summons and made possible by His grace. The New Testament uses the word ‘repentance’ to describe a personal response to the invitation to a new life in Christ.
