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 the 2020 “Land of Cochise” Calendar – supporting Good Neighbor Alliance, our local Shelter for homeless families and individuals – is now available in our Parish Office?       For a number of years, St. Andrew’s has helped to sponsor this wonderful calendar!

 

The “Land of  Cochise” Calendar features photos of scenery and sights around Cochise County, a calendar of events taking place throughout the year in our County, and a map giving the location of the photos! The photos are all contributed by local photographers, featuring locations which can be driven to, and giving a ‘photographic introduction’ to the wonders around us! There are also ‘factoids’ – interesting facts about the County and its history – did you know that Cochise County’s portion of the US-Mexico Border is 83 ½ miles? Or that Bisbee is the southernmost mile-high city in the US?

 

It is a great Christmas gift – showing folks ‘where we live and why we live here’! 

 

Because various organizations sponsor a page of the calendar – (St. Andrew’s sponsors December) – the cost of production is covered and every dollar of sales goes to support Good Neighbor Alliance – and provides the necessary shelter for families and individuals dealing with homelessness. Good Neighbor Alliance not only provides shelter, but also reaches out to the homeless – especially Veterans – and connects them with programs to help them get reestablished and permanently housed.

 

There is no program or ministry in Sierra Vista that does what Good Neighbor Alliance does for this part of our population. This ministry is essential to our community and to our churches, as we respond to His mandate: “I was a stranger and you welcomed Me.” (Matthew 25:35)  The Shelter itself is called: “Samaritan Station.”

 

Good Neighbor Alliance receives no government support and depends upon the faithful generosity of its “neighbors.” Our Knights of Columbus, Bishop Salpointe Council #4584 have been very strong supporters of this ministry – co-sponsoring an Annual Fund-Raising Dinner. Our Parish has donated the Thanksgiving Day Offering to Good Neighbor Alliance for a number of years.                                                                                                                     It is important – essential – that Good Neighbor Alliance stays open, and YOU can help!

 

Purchase a 2020 “Land of Cochise” Calendar – or enough calendars to send to all your out-of-state relatives for Christmas! – and make your contribution to this vital ministry. 

 

The suggested donation for each calendar is $12 – one dollar a month – to provide “shelter in the storms of life” for those in greatest need!

This past week, we received $35.00 in donations to the “Building Our Church” Fund! This Fund allows us to make necessary up-grades and unbudgeted repairs on our two-campus Parish! You may have noticed the removal of the pavers and replacement with gravel in front of Kino Hall, in an effort to save the Arizona ash trees – made possible by your generosity!

 

 

In response to requests from parishioners, for a “Morning Offering” prayer, (referred to in Fr. Greg’s homily), the following, from St. Alphonsus Liguori, is offered:

“O my God, I adore You. I love You with all my heart and I thank You for all Your gifts. I thank You for preserving me through the night and for bringing me to the beginning of this new day full of grace. I offer You all that I do or suffer throughout this day, in union with the actions and sufferings of JESUS. I intend to avoid everything that would offend You, but I ask that You give me the graces necessary to please You and reject sin. Give me to grace to love You more today than yesterday. Mary, Mother of my Lord, Mother of all His disciples, please take me under your care today. My guardian angel and my patron saints, come to my aid. Amen.

Do you have a prayer request?

 

Here's a convenient way to help your church

and ensure your weekly gift is safe and secure. 

Online Giving allows you to make your contribution electronically without the hassle of writing a check or carrying cash.  Your contributions are recorded aiding in yearend tax preparation and reducing parish staff bookkeeping time and effort. 
Wait!  What happens if I go TDY or need to leave the area for a while?  No problem.  You will continue to support St. Andrew's and its ministries no matter where you go.  Your gift is always accounted for even when you are on vacation. 
OK, so, what happens when the offertory plate is passed to me at Mass and I don't place anything in it? 
Good question.  Matthew 6:4 says "...so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." 
We are rapidly becoming a cashless society and Online Giving is the tool we are using today meeting our needs and looking ahead to the future.  We thank you as always for your support of our parish and all of our ministries.
