Parish Mission
St. Andrew Parish recognizes that, as Jesus Christ was
sent by God to
“bring the good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to
captives,and to the blind new sight, to set the downtrodden free, to proclaim the Lord’s year of favor,”
(Luke 4:18)
La Parroquia de San Andrés reconoce que, así como
Jesús fue enviado por Dios
“para traer la Buena Nueva a los pobres, para anunciar
libertad a los cautivos, y a los ciegos nueva luz. Poner en
libertad a los oprimidos y proclamar el año de gracia del
Señor,”(San Lucas 4:18) it is the mission of St. Andrew Parish to be a visible
presence of Christ in our culturally and racially diverse
neighborhood, rooted in the Gospel and nurtured by
liturgy, prayer, and the community of faith. As such we
commit ourselves to work with the poor, the powerless, and the oppressed for the liberation of all; to seek
justice, compas- sion, and peace in our lives, community,
and world; and to proclaim and celebrate God’s unconditional love for all.
....También es la misión de la Parroquia de San Andrés, el
ser presencia visible de Cristo en nuestra comunidad
con diversidad de razas y culturas, enraizada en el Evangelio y alimentada por la liturgia, la oración, y la comunidad
de fe. Como iglesia, nos comprometemos a trabajar con
los pobres, los desamparados y oprimidos,
por la liberación de todos; para buscar justicia, compasión, paz en nuestras vidas, en la comunidad y en
el mundo entero, y para proclamar y celebrar el amor
incondicional de Dios para todos.

“He is God, not of the dead, but of
the living!” As brothers and sisters of
the Lord Jesus, the first-born from the
dead, we rest assured that death’s sting is
a springboard to life with him. We who
are left behind are unable to avoid pain,
sadness and loss. Those who go before
us are marked with the cross—the sign
of our faith. There is no reason not
to weep, but it is our sorrow and it is
coupled with our hope in the resurrection path opened for us by our Messiah,
Jesus himself. Alleluia! Praise God!
2 Maccabees 7:1 -2, 9 - 14
Psalm: Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
2 Thessalonians 2: 16 - 3:5
Luke 20: 27 - 38

Why attend? Your participation and
donations will directly impact the lives of
individuals and families who come to us
for support. Many struggle to put food on
the table, pay their rent, keep the heat and
lights on, stay healthy, and live with dignity.
Our community center has been providing
safety net services for more than 40 years
and this event is the primary source of
funding for our community service programs. It’s also a lot of fun!

Funerals give the opportunity to remember and pray for the deceased and
to support and console the bereaved. A
distinction is commonly drawn between a funeral Mass (with the body of
the deceased present) and a memorial
Mass (with no body present, although
the cremains—cremated remains—of
the deceased may be). Both are liturgies of the church and follow the usual
liturgical protocols. If the cremains are
present, the cremains may be sprinkled with holy water and
incensed at the appropriate times, conferring the same respect
normally given to the body of the deceased. However no pall
is used. The cremains are usually placed on a table near the
paschal candle in the location a casket would occupy during
a funeral liturgy. In the case of a memorial Mass without cremains, a picture can be placed in front to give the focal point
that the casket would normally provide.
The rosary will be prayed every Sunday after the 9:30 mass in front of the
Tabernacle for Sr. Nancy Bolton, sister
of Licia Seaman. All are welcome.

November is traditionally a month set aside to remember
all those who have gone before us in death. Someone asked
“Why should we continue to have Masses said for someone
we believe is with God in heaven?” Masses and prayers can
simply express our thanks and praise to God for the life of
a person we have loved and still love. I know many people
who firmly believe that their loved ones are in heaven and
may even pray to them as saints of God, yet they still have
Masses said for them. Obviously, these Masses are expressions
of their faith and hope, a part of their remembering. Sound
Catholic theology speaks of the Communion of Saints: our
prayers for those who have gone before us is a concrete expression of that mystery of faith.

God of the Living
This is the beauty of prayer and of Christian life:
Coming to understand that a God
Who converses with humans
Has created them
And has lifted them up,
With the capacity of saying
“I” and “you.”
What would we give to have such power
As to create a friend of our own taste
And with a breath of our own life
to make that friend able to understand us
And be understood by us
And converse intimately—
To know our friend as truly another self ?
That is what God has done;
He has lifted us up
So that he can talk with us and share his joys,
His generosity,
His grandeur.
He is the God who converses with us.
Archbishop Oscar Romero, The Violence of Love
Oscar Romero (1917-1980) became archbishop of San Salvador in 1977. He gained
renown as a prophetic voice of the poor and was ultimately martyred at the altar
while saying Mass.
