E-Bulletin - August 26, 2019
There was definitely a different feel at Saint Andrew over the weekend. With families coming back from vacations and getting ready for the school year ahead, it felt like the community was back to its old self. There was a certain energy that we miss during our summer months. We hope you feel that energy in our community and that is a reminder of why we celebrate every Sunday. Our obligation to worship God on Sunday doesn't come from fear or punishment, it comes from the richness we experience when we are together, working to perfect our relationship with God. We hope you'll join us next Sunday! And again after that!
Below are a few key notices for Saint Andrew parish in the week ahead.

This week our staff of Saint Andrew Parish will be undergoing their annual "staff days" in which they work to broaden their skills for parish administration and their ability to work as a team. It may slow down some of the responses that you get if trying to contact them, but these days are an important for all teams (and families) to do. Sometimes it helps to take a step back and work on how to work smarter not harder, and hopefully better. Please pray for the parish staff as they take this time.
God bless and have a great week! For your convenience, we've included a copy of yesterday's bulletin below.
