Please note for families new to St. Andrew: Welcome! Families must be registered parishioners at St. Andrew in order to enroll in any Faith Formation class (K-12) and the Home Program. New Parishioner Registration forms may be submitted along with Faith Formation registration.
Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event! We need your help!
Youth Ministry is partnering with Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) for the first time. At just $.29 per meal, 80% of Rise Against Hunger meals are distributed through transformational programs like school feeding, orphanages, health clinics and vocational training. There’s also a large, growing focus on the health, education and empowerment of Women as a key driver for ending extreme poverty and hunger. As directed by Pope Francis, meal packaging with Rise Against Hunger is indeed a “concrete action that addresses the daily needs of the poor”; but also leverages that effort to help recipients move towards self-sufficiency.
To contribute towards the effort to package meals, to meet or exceed our goal, you can click “continue” below to donate on behalf of Saint Andrew’s youth. Every $29 feeds another 100! Click here to help!
