Welcome to Saint Andrew
Ordinary Time. Extraordinary Place.
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.

MARCH FOR LIFE
JANUARY 21, 2022
Please join us on Friday, January 21, 2022, for the annual MARCH FOR LIFE, marking the 49th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. This peaceful demonstration will bear witness to the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.
St. Andrew Respect Life Ministry has reserved two 54-passenger buses for parishioners. Our day begins with a 7:00am Mass at St. Andrew, followed by bus departure to the National Mall, Washington, DC, for the concert, rally, and THE MARCH.
We will return to St. Andrew at 8:00pm.
If you have school-age children, consider bringing them. There will be many children with us for the day. The cost is $25 per person or $60 max per family. Please write a check payable to "St. Andrew Respect Life Ministry" and drop it off at the Rectory Office to reserve your place. For more information, call Mike Phillips at (267) 797-0186.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
