Our Mission...

We, the parish of Saint Andrew Catholic Church, are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ, upholding one another on the journey of faith. Formed by the Word, Sacraments, and Prayer, we strive to live the spiritual and corporal works of mercy in our relationships, near and far. With joyful outreach, we invite all to the beauty of faith in Jesus Christ.
Our symbol depicts the moment when Andrew introduces Jesus to Peter.

WOMEN'S ADVENT REFLECTION

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, join us for a morning of reflection and prayer with Christen Routh on the life of Mary as she visits Saint Elizabeth.

Before busying ourselves with the gift-givings of the season, let us take a moment to unpack some of the gifts of Our Lady as we discuss companionship, joy, gratitude, and her role as Mediatrix.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS

RCIA-logo.png

Join Us.

RCIA is for three groups of people:

 

1. Those who are NOT baptized.

2. Those who were baptized into another Christian denomination and wish to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.

3. Baptized Catholics who were not fully formed into the Catholic faith and have not completed their initiation, who have not received either the Sacraments of Holy Communion or Confirmation.

Classes are held on Mondays at 7:00pm in the Parish Meeting Room from September 2021-May 2022.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please contact Fr. Kyle Adamczyk or the RCIA team.

JOIN A SMALL FAITH GROUP

Small Groups offer an excellent opportunity to connect with other parishioners while enriching our faith. Those involved in small groups consistently cite a greater feeling of community and better clarity in what it means to live out their faith daily. The meeting format for these meetings will consist of reflection on the coming Sunday’s Gospel, faith sharing, and praying the rosary.

MEN’S GROUP
Meets every other Saturday at the Olde Church from 7–9:00am. For more information, please click on the Men's Group Button to contact Ron Duchesneau.

WOMEN’S GROUP
We are excited to start a new group for adult women who want to deepen their spiritual lives while connecting to other women. Meetings will be every other Saturday at St. Michael’s Room (lower level at the Rectory), from 7–8:30am. For more information, please click on the Women's Group Button to contact Jennifer Stewart.

RCIA GROUP
This group is for those who went through the RCIA program and wish to continue their faith journey in a supportive environment. Meetings are on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 7–8:30pm in the Lower Level of the Old Church. For more information, please click on the RCIA SFG Button to contact Joel Kern.

A Small Faith Group at Saint Andrew is where our large church gets small. We meet to discuss faith, explore our spiritual growth, and support one another in our relationship with Christ. This is the place to care for others and be cared for; a home to impact our community and the world. Small Faith Groups are a great place to explore, ask questions, and grow. Everyone Can Be in a Group! So join a Small Faith Group and begin growing in your relationship with God.
