St. Andrew is a faith community baptized into one body, which honors and celebrates diversity. We welcome and include
persons of every color, language, ethnicity,
origin, ability, sexual orientation, gender
expression, marital status, and life situation.
La Parroquia de San Andrés es una
comunidad bautizada en un cuerpo, que
honra y celebra la diversidad. Acogemos a
las personas de todos colores, lenguas,
razas, origenes, habilidades, orientación
sexual, estado civil y estilos de vida.
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)
so 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, compassion, and peace in our lives, community, and world; and to
proclaim and celebrate God’s unconditional love for all.
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
(San Lucas 4:18)
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.

Capernaum, hometown of Simon
and Andrew, became Jesus’ home
base too. On the Sabbath, he went
out to the synagogue to teach with
authority over physical and spiritual
evils. He dramatically cast out devils,
curing Simon’s mother-in-law and
healing many other sick people. Jesus
went about the messianic work. That
labor came to fruition as he cast out
death itself in his passover to resurrection. Bolstered by prayer, Jesus
single-mindedly set out to spread the
good news. How do we join him?

“In my weakness is my strength,” Paul writes (2 Cor.
12:10). I never understood that passage nor did I like it
until, struck with polio as a young woman, I began little by
little to realize that if I ever walked again, it would not be
thanks to me, it would be thanks to everyone around me
who formed the human chain that kept me human. When
I could not move, they carried me. When I could not work,
they found functions for me that justified my existence.
When I could not find a reason for going on, they liked
me enough to give me back a sense of human connectedness. When I could not cure
myself, they cured me of the clay of my limits and turned them into life again. They
taught me the glories of weakness.
When I most wanted to be strong and like no other time in life found myself
defined by my weaknesses, I began to understand the great questions of life. If I do
not need other people, what is their own purpose in life, what is their claim on my
own gifts when they need me as I have needed them? The moment I come to realize
that it is precisely the gifts which I do not myself embody that make me claimant to
the gifts of others—and they of mine—marks the moment of my spiritual beginning. Suddenly, creature-hood becomes gift and power and the beginning of unlimited personal growth.
–from In Search of Belief by Joan Chittister, OSB
