Our Father

Our Father

I always say the Our Father but I always have trouble with one of those petitions. Which one, Charlie? “Lead us not into temptation.” Why would we have to ask God to do that? Why would He want to lead us into temptation in the first place? Well, a lot of people have the same question, Charlie. The best way I know of to solve that problem is to go to the CCC. What’s the CCC? The Catechism of the Catholic Church, every family should have one. It comes out in a paperback edition. Go out and get one. I will, I will! But tell me what it says. Why would God want to lead us into temptation?...

Words From Pastor’s Desk

Dear Parishioners, Each of us is now a part of history. Last Sunday, we witnessed the great celebration and Canonization of two Popes – Ss.John Paul II and John XXIII; the Mass was concelebrated by two living Popes. This has never happened before. Two new Saints and two beautiful role models we are able to follow, especially for those of us who either personally met, visited, or watched these men through media through the years. What a wonderful way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. Thank you to all who participated in our Divine Mercy Devotion. A special Thank You to Catholic Charities who...

St. John Paul II the Great – My Hero

As a teenager, I never thought that I would witness such an amazing place in the history of the church and the world. On October 16, 1978, the communist propaganda television program was interrupted. At 6 pm, I heard that John Paul had suddenly died and I saw a mighty church (then I did not know it was St. Peter’s Basilica). The news continued with the naming of the new Pope – it was Poland’s Cardinal Karol Wojtyla. We were in shock. Suddenly I heard the church bells ringing. Joy and hope dawned in our hearts – I will, we will, be free. I remember well the words of one of the religious order...

Request for Volunteers – EM to the Sick

Request for Volunteers – EM to the Sick

Celebrating the Eucharist is at the very heart of our faith. However, because of illness or injury, many of our fellow Catholics in the St. Andrew area cannot join in the celebration, either because of illness or lack of transportation. To ensure that these community members stay connected to us and can receive the Eucharist, St. Andrew Parish sponsors the Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick, bringing Communion to Catholics in area nursing homes, convalescent centers, and their homes. These Eucharistic Ministers (EMs) to the Sick are a wonderful “invisible army” that works quietly, diligently...
