E-Bulletin - March 4, 2019
We want to send a very big "
" out to everyone who came out to support the annual
Wearin' the Green
! From the volunteers who set up, to donors and sponsors of the event, to guests, partiers, and auction bidders, it was a fun evening with an enormous impact. We'll report on the totals as soon as we can, but early indications suggest that we are near to topping our previous record for fundraising dollars. That's a pretty significant accomplishment and goes a long way in supporting our mission at Saint Andrew.
As we move into the week ahead, we are mindful that this
Wednesday, March 6, 2019
is the start of Lent with Ash Wednesday. See below for the schedule of Masses and prayer services.
Here are a few important notices from the parish for the week ahead.
