H.O.P.E. = faith

The H.O.P.E. Ministry is a community outreach program that covers all residents living within the boundaries of Saint Andrew Church.

Many of our receivers are parishioners, but this is not a requirement.

Our volunteer caregivers are all members of Saint Andrew Parish, who come from all walks of life and of all ages, both male and female. They are truly selfless in their love for God and service to their fellow man.

They care for the elderly, ill, disabled, and serve families who are going through a crisis and need extra help.


H.O.P.E. = hope

H.O.P.E. is a group of concerned volunteers who are willing to help others. We serve those in the geographical boundaries of Saint Andrew Catholic Church.

Our robust network of 230 volunteers is divided into six (6) teams and we average 40 tasks per week. It is coordinated primarily through email.


H.O.P.E. = love

The tasks are varied and range from providing transportation to Mass, doctor and dental visits, grocery shopping, and doing errands. We also prepare and deliver meals, and visit the sick, disabled, or homebound.

Each volunteer is asked to perform a task every six weeks and is never asked to do anything that would make them uncomfortable.

So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 

- 1 Corinthians 13:13

Love is our mission. To love each person as we love ourselves, to perform those little acts of kindness that mean so much to others.

We need your help to help those in need of assistance. Won't you please consider joining H.O.P.E.?

If you require assistance, or would like to join this ministry, please call one of the coordinators below.

Our members give freely of their time and talents because of the genuine interest for our care receivers.

H.O.P.E. volunteers are God's "boots on the ground."
