St. Andrew Bulletin - October 13, 2019

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?  But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.  Psalm 130 (129):3-4.

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


Please remember that the noise from the narthex carries directly into the church even when the doors are closed.  As this affects those who are trying to pray or mediate in preparation for the Sunday Mass, please be as quiet as possible when you enter the front doors of the church.

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

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s Heritage Festival a huge success!!  Our Hispanic women outdid themselves, selling over $1,000.00 in authentic Mexican food.  The long lines for lunch began around 11:00 a.m. and remained until the last meals were served about 2:00 p.m.  We also need to mention Sergio Ariago Sotero, who donated his homemade chimichangas, which were a hit with the crowd.  As always, our Guild and many others donated their time and talent by setting up the booth, working all day at the booth selling baked goods and other items, and then breaking everything down at the end of a very long day.  All of these efforts resulted in raising $1,423.00 for our church!!

First Reconciliation/First Communion, Confirmation, and RCIA classes have begun.  Please keep in your prayers all of the students, their teachers, and their families.

The Diocesan Office of Evangelization and Parish of St. Barnabas are coordinating a special pilgrimage to see the internationally-renowned German Passion Play and to tour Eastern Europe, including Prague and Poland, May 20-30, 2020.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the world-famous Passion Play at Oberamergau, Germany, celebrate the 100th birthday anniversary of St. John Paul II in Poland, venerate the icon of Our Lady of Czestowchowa, and visit the Shrine of Divine Mercy in Krakow.  For more information, please contact Frank Villaronga, Diocesan Director of Evangelization and Adult Education at or 704 370-3274.  You may also contact Evelyn Wavrek at Select International Tours by calling 800 842-4842.


Stewardship is an important concept for our spiritual growth as Catholics.  It is a way of thanking God for all His blessings by returning to Him a portion of the time, talent and treasure we have received.
