Immigrant Family Preparedness Guide for Georgia Families - In recent weeks, it was announced that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers are going to begin enforcement actions on thousands of immigrant families over the next weeks. Raids are scheduled in major cities of the country including Atlanta. These broad enforcement actions instigate panic in our communities --- and will not serve as a deterrent to irregular immigration. 

To assist families who might be effected, Catholic Charities in conjunction with the USCCB created a resource page that can be used to prepare and protect individuals in case they or a family member is detained by ICE. Please click on the links below to learn more.

End of Life Seminar: Decision Making and The Conversation-- A Catholic Perspective on End-of-Life Issues
Conversations about illness, death and dying are never easy, but being prepared ensures your final wishes are followed. It is important for you and your loved ones to understand the Church’s teachings on end-of-life decisions in regards to your health. Advance planning prevents your family from having to make the most difficult of decisions.  You can lift the burden from your loved ones by making these decisions in advance for your family and choosing a trusted loved one to carry out your healthcare wishes. 

The Pastoral Council of St. Andrew is sponsoring a seminar to learn about the your options on July 12 at 7:00 pm or July 13 at 10:00 am in the Multi-Purpose room.  This free seminar is for people of all ages and life situations. We will also explain the methods most commonly used to pre-plan for your future.  You will have the option to prepare an advance health care directive at the end of this seminar.  To sign up, contact Attorney at Law, Becki Campolito at or call 770 642-5495 for more information.

Scam emails/texts impacting our parish! Several ministry leaders, volunteers and even staff members have received emails and/or texts from email accounts that appear to be from Fr. Dan, requesting gift cards for cancer patients. The email or text looks authentic, as if it is being sent from Fr. Dan. Please know that this is a scam. Our priests will never ask anyone for gift cards, cash or other items of value via text or email.  Please check with the parish office if you think you have received a fraudulent email or text.  The best thing you can do is to ignore the email or text. Stay safe!

Thank you for considering being a Catholic friend/sponsor for our inquirers. 
Common FAQ's:
  1. You must be a confirmed Catholic. Confirmed teens are welcomed and needed.
  2. Your role is to share your faith journey, not teach.  That’s the job of the RCIA/RICA team.
  3. Classes meet Sundays 9-10:30 AM. We invite you to be a part of the classes as often as you can. (Sponsor Elaine R. said, “I learn something new myself every time I come.”)
  4. After November 18, we all go to the 11 AM Mass together. Inquirers are dismissed after the homily but sponsors can stay.
