Church Envelopes - Hello Parishioners! In our ongoing issue with our envelopes, it appears that many of you have received envelopes when you have chosen to contribute a different way. While we work to resolve this issue, we ask that if you do not normally contribute by envelope, that you leave a message with the rectory office. We also ask you to accept our apologies & be patient during this time. THANK YOU!
Welcome, and thank you for visiting St. Andrew's Parish online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and community participation opportunities available to you and your family. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
Our Lady of Fatima home visitation program. We are excited to share with you a new initiative to bring Our Lady of Fatima into your home! More info here.
Fr. Matt's Message This Week
By now you have probably heard or seen that our church, rectory and school were closed. All is well and so are the staff and myself.
One of our new hires at the school contracted the virus.
This person attended a staff
luncheon for the retirement of our former business manager. We were made aware of this person’s diagnosis a few days later. The Department of Health was contacted and under their direction, everyone that had contact with this person was notified and went for testing. Just to be safe, we decided to close the buildings out of concern and safety for our parishioners and the community’s well being. Thankfully, all those tested came back negative for the virus. Because of the measures taken, we were able to reopen safely at this time.
I would like to take this opportunity to stress the importance of wearing a mask, washing your hands and practice social distancing and if you are not feeling well, please stay home. Thank you for all the prayers and concern and your understanding throughout this temporary closure. I look forward to celebrating Mass with you again! Let us pray for a healthy new school year for our students,faculty and staff . Stay safe and Be well!
