Pastor's Welcome

Dear Friends of St. Andrew's,


From the founding of our Parish in 1958, we have grown and developed with Sierra Vista - as partners in building up this great community we call home. 


Over the decades, we sought to be active participants in every aspect of community life. We believe that serving the common good and making this city a place where people come first, where the least and most easily-overlooked are served and cared for, and where the quality of life is enhanced for all our fellow citizens, is an essential witness to our faith.


We hope our parish church is a place where all experience the Presence of God and the welcome of God's People. We pray that its beauty will speak a wordless invitation to those who are seeking, those who are wearied by life's burdens and those who are drawn to lift their hearts in prayer.


We thank God for giving us this opportunity to extend His blessings and to share our church and campus facilities with the Sierra Vista community.


The pulse of St. Andrew's is reflected through our ministries and individual parishoner efforts.  I hope to highlight these achievements and bring focus to upcoming events in the article following this message.


Yours because His,

Fr. Greg Adolf

Did You Know...?


...that next Saturday, 7 May, is the WEST END FAIR, here in our neighborhood?

This annual event allows that folks who live and work here on the West End of Sierra Vista to invite the whole community to join in a street fair (Fry Boulevard will be closed from North Avenue to Garden Avenue) with a classic car show, live music, entertainment and display booths/crafts!

Among those who will be participating in the WEST END FAIR, will be our Knights of Columbus, Bishop Salpointe Council #4584, Carmichael Neighborhood Response Team, Columbian Hall (former Knights of Columbus’ Hall), and the St. Paul Street Evangelization Ministry! We are so grateful to have this strong “Catholic presence” at the WEST END FAIR – and each of these groups would be very grateful to have some volunteers to help “man” the tables and share the good news of what the Church is all about!


Ed Graveline brought the St. Paul Street Evangelization ministry here to St. Andrew’s  from its very successful point of origin in Las Vegas, Nevada. This ministry of personal evangelization trains Catholics how to share the Faith with others, and how to ‘welcome home’ Catholics who are no longer participating in the life of the Church.

St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit Catholic evangelization organization, “taking our Catholic Faith to the streets. We do this in a non-confrontational way, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who witness our public Catholic presence. St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for you to share the Person of JESUS Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture”, according to their excellent website: streetevangelization.com – check it out and come spend some time with Ed  and others at the WEST END FAIR!

This past week, we received $2395.00 in NEW gifts and pledges to the Annual Catholic Appeal of our Diocese! Through the Annual Catholic Appeal (formerly known as the “Bishop’s Appeal”), 26 vital ministries of our Diocese are funded! Because the Diocese belongs to 100% of us in this Parish, we hope for a much stronger participation level than the 17% Parish participation we now have! Please consider making a one-time gift – of ANY amount  - to the Annual Catholic Appeal!!!
