About Our Parish

     St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church in Mars Hill and its mission church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Burnsville, cover 764 square miles in Western North Carolina. As the Roman Catholic presence in Madison and Yancey Counties, we endeavor to be the presence of Christ in our service to each other and strive to grow in our Catholic faith through celebration of the Holy Eucharist.



Everyone has a role to play in protecting children. North Carolina law requires all adults to immediately report suspected child abuse by anyone to law enforcement agencies. If you know or suspect that a minor (person under 18) has been abused, please call 9-1-1 or contact local law enforcement.

Also, if you have information about possible sexual abuse or misconduct by any clergy, employee or volunteer of the Diocese of Charlotte, report concerns securely and anonymously 24/7 over the phone or online: 1-888-630-5929 or www.RedFlagReporting.com/RCDOC.


Did you know that every Church worker must go through abuse prevention and education training?
