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 our Religious Education programs are preparing to go back in “full swing”? 

Our Parish provides a wide variety of classes in faith formation for all ages: Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults, Teens, and Children; Sacramental Preparation Classes; ‘Catechesis of the Good Shepherd’; CCD Classes; Adult Bible Studies; ‘Life Teen’ and ‘Edge’ programs; and special interest programs through the Parish Library!


All of these opportunities are provided at no cost to the participants, because Religious Education is one of the things that we “do” as a faithful, dynamic Parish. 


The drawback seems to be that “no cost” is sometimes misinterpreted as “having no value”! But our continuing, life-long, formation in our Faith is part of being a disciple of JESUS Christ – a large part of what makes one a faithful Catholic. 

 

In every area of our lives we assume the need to grow in our wisdom and understanding,
in order to respond more and more maturely and be well-informed in all important matters.

 

Certainly growing and maturing in our spiritual life is – or should be – a top priority.


This requires a commitment of our time and our energy, as with any of our true priorities!

 

Please consider taking advantage of one of the many opportunities offered here on a daily basis to grow and mature in your own faith.


Please support your children’s faith formation by committing to having them present for classes and reviewing their lessons at home! 

 

(When you consider how many hours most of our children spend each week watching mind-numbing, spirit dumbing television, the importance of the very few hours given to their faith formation becomes obvious!) 

 

Thank you for your faithful support for Religious Education in our Parish – as students,
as teachers, as volunteers, and as conscientious parents!

This past week, we received $5.00 in donation to the “Building Our Church Fund”!

Thanks to your continuing generosity, we are able to respond to emergency needs/repairs without impacting our very tight Budget! This is one of the ways in which this Fund is able to make a BIG difference for our Maintenance Staff and Buildings and Grounds Committee, in responding to the needs of our two-campus Parish! 

 

 

“JESUS, You don’t really know me, my dark feelings, my pride, my lust, my greed. I may speak the right words, but my heart is so far from You. No, I am not good enough to belong to You.

You must have someone else in mind, not me. But You look at me with utter tenderness, saying, ‘I want you to be with Me. I want you to have a full share in My life. I want you to belong to Me as much as I belong to My Father. I want you and I to be one, so that you can do to others what I have done to you’. I must let go of all of my fears, distrust, doubts and anguish and simply let You make me Your friend.”

- Fr. Henri Nouwen   (1936 – 1999)

 

 

On behalf of all of us at Saint Vincent de Paul we would like to invite you to join us for the Walk for the Poor on September 14th.

We would also like to ask you to help us get the word out to the community.

With your help, we are hoping to have a very successful food drive.

We help approximately 1000 households a month, giving out that many food boxes, which typically feeds 3,300-3,500 people!!

 

Thank you for your help and we hope to see you on September 14th!

 

God bless,

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.

 

New Diocesan Web Site

 

The Diocese of Tucson has launched a new web site at:  www.diocesetucson.org.  The new website is easier to navigate and will help Catholics quickly locate information about our diocese and its programming and ministries.

We're still updating sections of the site but one area that already has seen a great deal of updating is our Youth ministries section.  You can access this key ministry by clicking on the Youth icon on the home page. You will find listings of several programs your parish or others may have in place for youth, and more specifically we included a contact list for all parishes with youth programs.  

The new home page also provides access to our Human Resources department, Vocations department, and Catholic schools office. There are news briefs and quick access links to my Facebook page, the Wednesday Update, and several of our affiliated organizations such as our Catholic Foundation and the Catholic Tuition Support Organization (CTSO).  Please log on to see what we have to offer! God bless you.  

Bishop Edward J. Weisenburger

NEW BIBLE STUDY beginning this week!


A new Bible Study: “The Questions JESUS asks – key questions for life!” will begin this Tuesday morning (9:45 AM – following the morning Mass) and Wednesday evening (7:00 PM). Both Studies are in Madonna Hall and are about 50 minutes in length. The Scripture passages will be provided as a hand-out at each Session! Whether or not you have ever participated in a Bible Study before, this is a great “intro” into a wonderful sharing of God’s Word! Please join Father Greg and Father Rob in these dynamic and life-enriching Sessions!

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. 
Please use the button below and begin enjoying the safety and convenience Online Giving provides in weekly and single contributions.
