E-Bulletin - February 10, 2020
Early Sunday morning we were saddened to learn of a shooting near the church, near Ashland and Addison Avenue. Up to the time this message was written, one individual had died and another was in critical condition. It was shocking to discover what happened.
Violence shocks us because it is against our nature. We believe were created in love and for love - hatred, fear, anger, and rejection are contrary to what God wants for us. When tragedies occur, we begin to heal by coming together in mutual support and prayer, and by actively promoting peace and justice in our communities. If you are in need of support at this time, please don't hesitate to contact the parish office to speak with a priest or pastoral minister. We can be reached at 773-525-3016.
Below are a couple of key notifications for the parish in the week ahead.

Annual Catholic Appeal
This past Sunday, we began the Annual Catholic Appeal for the Archdiocese of Chicago. This appeal helps support the many services provided by the Archdiocese, several of which benefit Saint Andrew directly. In past years, we have exceeded our parish goal which is set for $34,114. Any surplus amount that exceeds our goal is returned to Saint Andrew parish and benefits our general operating expenses. Please be generous in the is appeal.
Continue to have a great week. If there is anything that the parish staff or members of the community can do to support you, do not hesitate to ask.
For your convenience, we've included a copy of yesterday's bulletin below.
