From Our Pastor


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


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


Did You Know...?

. . . That much of the beautiful music of this most joyous Season takes place right here on our Parish Campus?

Next Sunday evening, 17 December, at 7:00PM, the Advent and Christmas portions of Handel’s MESSIAH, will be performed in our own Sanctuary! Once again this year, it will be under the capable direction of Reynaldo Romo, (Music Director at Our Lady of the Mountains, as well as our Youth Choir Director), and will feature a community-wide Choir and soloists, which includes many of our own parishioners! Handel’s MESSIAH has been called a ‘Gospel written in music’ and will lift your heart and spirit for the true celebration of Christmas! We are so very grateful to our wonderful musicians, who spend so many hours preparing for these beautiful concerts and special seasonal music! Again, this marvelous piece of music, will be presented without charge on our own Parish campus – in our church (you can sit in your favorite pew!!)

There will be a free-will Offering for the St. Vincent de Paul Society – to help the needy, especially at this time!

One of the most important ‘witnesses’ which we Catholics can offer to a darkened and often frightened world is the gift of Beauty – a reflection of that perfect Beauty, which is God! Come and enjoy and let your hearts be ‘lifted up to the Lord’!!

For many people, music can be a ‘gateway’ to spiritual experiences. Perhaps you can select some recordings of the music of Advent and Christmas to play as you pray, and as you take care of the tasks around the home. Sometimes just allowing ourselves to experience the Presence of God in these moments of awareness can calm our hearts and re-center them. The Scripture says that we should have “a song in our hearts” – this is a wonderful opportunity to fill your heart with the extraordinarily beautiful music of the season! AND, there is another wonderful Christmas celebration being celebrated in our wonderfully multi-cultural Parish – the Filipino-American community invites you to join them for the celebration of Simbang Gabi ("evening Masses”) the traditional Filipino preparation for Christmas!

Simbang Gabi is celebrated through nine days of prayer, beginning this Friday, 15 December and continuing through Saturday, 23 December honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary, preparing with Her for the Birth of our Lord! Each of these evenings includes a celebration of the Mass, novena prayers, the Rosary, and concludes with a joyful potluck dinner! You are invited to join in welcoming Christ in our families and communities in this beautiful traditional Filipino celebration!

The Via Christi Society is eternally grateful to St. Andrew's

Food For Your Soul

“If Christ did not want to dismiss the crowds without food in the wilderness for fear that they would grow weak and collapse on the way, it was to teach us that it is impossible to try to get to heaven without the Bread of Heaven!”

/// St. Jerome (342-420)

This Week's Catholic Quiz

This week’s Question: “What is ‘Gaudete Sunday’?”

The Answer to Last Week’s Question: “What is Gregorian Chant”? Gregorian chant is another name for the traditional plain chant – a melody sung without musical accompaniment – that is used to intone liturgical prayer. It recalls the role that music-loving Pope St. Gregory I, the Great (540-604) took in organizing, improving, and establishing norms for liturgical music. Pope St. Gregory had been a Benedictine monk before his election to the Papacy, and brought that tradition of plain chant to the whole Church.
