St. Andrew Bulletin - June 23, 2019

He fed them with the finest wheat and satisfied them with honey from the rock.  cf. Psalm 81 (80):17.


MASS SCHEDULE:  11:00 a.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday.


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


Today we are celebrating Mass for the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi).


Please keep in your prayers our newest priests ordained yesterday at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Huntersville – Frs. Michael Carlson, Alfonso Gamez, Jr., and Britt Taylor.  Also, please remember to pray for all those seminarians throughout the world who continue daily to discern their call to the priesthood and to study and prepare for future ordinations.

DIOCESAN SUPPORT APPEAL 2019 – “WE ARE HIS HANDS.”  Next Sunday, June 30, there will be a second collection for this year’s DSA.  As of the end of this past week, the total remaining balance for St. Andrew is $6,942.00 and $6,281.00 for Sacred Heart.  We need everyone’s help to reach our assessments.  There are multiple 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; (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.  As we pray for our recently-ordained priests, please remember that 10 percent (10%) of DSA donations are used for seminarian education and the permanent diaconate.

St. Andrew’s Annual Yard Sale took place yesterday, and it was a huge success!!  By 12:00 p.m., the Guild had already sold over $1,000.00, and the customers just kept coming.  The Guild would like to sincerely thank everyone who  put so much time and effort into this major fundraiser.

Following today’s Mass, our own Gracemarie Warren, will be in the narthex with copies of her new book “I AM . . . Meditations: We become what we think about.”  In this book, Gracemarie invites us to reflect on a daily “I AM…” poem to inspire our own focus for the day.
