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 Fr. Bill Rhinehart, C.M. will be here next weekend to begin our Advent Parish Mission?


Fr. Bill is a Vincentian Father and gave our Lenten Parish Mission a couple of years ago – we have invited him back to help spiritually prepare for Advent and the Christmas Seasons! The Advent Parish Mission will focus on the Jubilee Year of Mercy, which officially begins on 8 December!

Fr. Bill will be preaching at the Masses next weekend, to invite us to the Mission and give us a preview of the Mission Talks!

The schedule is Mass (and Mission Talk) at 9:00 AM on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. (Tuesday, 8 December, is, of course, a Holy Day – the Feast of the Immaculate Conception) and a 7:00PM on Monday, Fr. Bill will give a Mission Talk. On Tuesday, he will preach at the 7:00 PM Mass for the Holy Day. On Wednesday, we will celebrate our Advent Communal Penance Service at 7:00 PM, with Fr. Bill again preaching for the Service!

We ask that all other ministries and apostolates cancel any regularly scheduled meetings those 3 days and plan on attending – with your group – the Advent Parish Mission!

Hopefully, by scheduling the Advent Parish Mission a little earlier in December, more parishioners will be able to attend – before things get too terribly busy for us to make a spiritual preparation for Christmas, which is what the Season of Advent is really all about!

Please plan on attending the Advent Parish Mission with your family – and invite others to come experience this wonderful Mission with Fr. Bill Rhinehart!!!


Don’t forget the annual Saint Nicholas Fair next Sunday morning in Kino Hall!

The Ladies of St. Andrew’s – our Hostesses – are still looking for your donated Baked Goods to share with the parishioners!

This past week, we received $762.00 in donations to the “Building Our Church” Fund, which has largely underwritten the major renovations and other improvements to Madonna Hall! Thank you so much for your wonderful generosity!!!
