Disaster Relief Response

If you would like to express your solidarity with and support for those affected by natural disasters, prayers and monetary donations are the best way to ensure people will get what they need.

When a natural disaster occurs in the United States and its territories, checks or electronic donations may be directed to Catholic Charities USA, which assures us that 100% of donations go to the local organizations providing assistance. They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction. They also assist the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops with pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church. Their address information follows:

Have you ever wondered how your family would handle your health decisions if you became ill? Do you want to learn more about the teachings of the Catholic Church about end of life issues? St. Andrew Pastoral Council is sponsoring a free seminar to help you understand the Church’s position on health care decisions. We want to give you the information to help you make informed decisions about your health issues. Our goal is for you to open a dialogue with your loved ones so they understand and support your wishes before a life-altering health event. Everyone who attends the seminar will have the opportunity to prepare a written advance health care directive. The first seminar is Friday, September 21 at 6:30 p.m. The second seminar is Saturday, September 22 at 9:00 a.m. in the Family Center.

In case you missed it --- St. Andrew has a new Parochial Vicar  - beginning July 2, 2018

We are blessed to have Fr. Jorge Carranza  among us as our new parochial vicar. He is coming from Good Shepherd and has been a priest for 3 years. St. Andrew welcomed him with a parish-wide gathering on July 8.
 
Here is a letter from Fr. Jorge published on our July 8th bulletin. 
 
Dear parishioners of St. Andrew,

Bishop Bernard E. Shlesinger III has assigned me to Saint Andrew beginning July 2, 2018. I am very happy with the decision, and I look forward to serving you as your priest. On the side note, allow me to share a little beignet about myself. I am originally from Chicago, the Windy City. Because of this, I am a Cubbies fan, and I also like the Chicago Bears, hopefully they could win the Super bowl one day. I discovered my vocation back in 2003 in Calhoun, GA where I used to live. After discerning my vocation for three years, I entered the seminary in 2006 at St. Joseph Seminary in Louisiana. Then, I attended St. Vincent Seminary in Pennsylvania, and I was ordained to the Priesthood in June 27, 2015 at Christ the King Cathedral.

My first assignment was Good Shepherd, which means that I have only been a priest for three years. I am very grateful for the community of Good Shepherd for their countless support, love, and blessings that I received from them. I pray that when I arrive at Saint Andrew, I may help you all encounter Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, set your hearts on fire with God’s love, and build a community that is guided by the love of Christ. May God continue to bless you and always keep you under the protection of the Blessed Mother.

In His Name,

Father Jorge Carranza
