St. Andrew Bulletin - August 18, 2019

Turn your eyes, O God, our shield, and look on the face of your anointed one.  One day within your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.  Psalm 84 (83):10-11.

WEEKDAY MASS SCHEDULE11:00 a.m. Thursday and Friday.


As you are entering the front doors of the church, please remember to be as quiet as possible for those who are praying or meditating in preparation for the Sunday Mass.


Everyone is invited to join in praying the Rosary following each Friday’s weekday Mass at 11:00 a.m.

To date, 37 families/individuals in our Parish (21 at St. Andrew and 16 at Sacred Heart) have either pledged or made a one-time donation to this year’s DSA.  The current balances due are $4,517.00 for St. Andrew and $4,291 for Sacred Heart.  There are many ways to donate:  (1) online at where you can make a pledge or a one-time donation; (2) mail checks made payable to DSA 2019 (not to St. Andrew) directly to DSA 2019, Diocese of Charlotte, 1123 South Church Street, Charlotte, North Carolina 28203; or (3) place a check in the collection baskets at Sunday Masses.  It is very important that the church name is noted on the memo line of the check.  Please be as generous as possible.

Faith Formation Classes for Children and Youth will begin in mid-September.  If anyone would like to enroll their children in these classes that take place following Sunday Masses, please talk with Lynda Webb or Vicki Fedor.

If anyone would like to donate food, clothing or other items for the poor, please consider taking these donations to the Beacon of Hope Thrift Store in Marshall.  The Beacon is the largest food pantry in Madison County and uses sales from its thrift store to provide services for those in our county who are in need.

The Diocese of Charlotte Eucharistic Congress will take place September 6 and 7 at the Charlotte Convention Center.  For more information, please visit
