GriefShare, a support group for those who have had a loved one pass, will be starting “in person” sessions at Dyer Funeral Home in Cookeville. We will have all necessary health precautions in place. The meetings are on Tuesdays starting October 6th from 9:30am to 11am for 13 weeks. If interested, please call Bill (931) 510-1335 or Ann Nothnagle (931) 510-1335.

Coast to Coast Rosary 2020

In 2020, Spiritual Battle has intensified with the forces of evil becoming even more extreme in their positions against Life from conception to birth to natural death and the Sanctity of Marriage and Family. These forces manifest a radical rebellion against God’s creation of man and woman into which they seek to indoctrinate even our children.  While they call for acceptance of their positions, they are openly hostile against and completely intolerant of biblically based Christian beliefs and practice; in essence, against anyone who does not share their radical and unholy beliefs. It is in this environment that a Call to Spiritual Arms is being issued again and with even greater urgency to prayer warriors across the country and the world.


At St. Andrew Church, the rosary will begin promptly at 3:00pm on Sunday, October 11th.  Please start gathering at the church at 2:30pm. We will be conducting the rosary outside in the parking lot. This is to accommodate the people who are not comfortable inside as well as allowing those who maybe have difficulty standing; they can sit in their cars with the windows down. Mike Cypcar will lead from a place where all can hear him. If we had a portable speaker and microphone, that would help. If anyone has access to this equipment and would be willing to loan it for the afternoon to us, contact Mike Cypcar*. If not, Mike can be loud. Mike’s goal is to make it as convenient as possible so we can have the maximum number of people. 


Devoted Catholics of all ages across North America are uniting in prayer. Many will meet face to face in familiar locations. Others can participate in spirit. You are invited to join in this extraordinary movement of prayer that is designed to mobilize and energize multi-generational groups of children and families.


All are welcome to attend, so plan ahead!

Caring Ministry of St. Andrew Parish


St. Andrew’s Caring Ministry provides spiritual visits to the Sick and Home-bound to listen and comfort, share prayer and sacrament, and to make present God’s love and the Church’s care to those in need. Program suspended for now.

One Way

Did you see the “One Way” sign? If you need to drive around the back of the church, please drive to the left side of the church and go “clockwise” around the back of the church. That’s where those with wheel chairs/walkers are dropped off to enter church!

Prayer Shawls

We need people to make prayer shawls and the names of anyone who might need one. Program suspended for now.

St. Andrew Emporium

Do you know that we have Gift Certificates you can purchase. Visit our gift shop. We now have key chains and pendants – made in Italy – and St. Michael medals. You’re sure to find the right gift at the right price! Open before and after Sunday Mass and by appointment. See Linda Keller for details.
Used Ink Cartridges


The box for depositing your empty ink cartridges has been relocated to the office.  We can accept all cartridges except those made for Epson.

Bulletin Announcements


If you would like an announcement of your church event put in the bulletin two weeks in advance, you need to submit it three weeks in advance to give us time to include it!  Thursday morning at 10:00am is the deadline for that Sunday's printing. Thank you!

Church Business

Please use our church office address,, for-church related correspondence. Your request will be handled much quicker if it comes directly into the office.
Please inform the church secretary, by the third week of the month, if you are unable to fulfill your ministerial duties the following month.  That will give us time to change the schedule before it is distributed.

Grateful Thanks to Volunteers


We would like to express a word of thanks to all the volunteers who, year after year, give of their time and talent to do the "behind the scenes" work that makes a community successful. Unlike those who claim they have done their share and it is time for others to step in, these volunteers are always ready to lend a hand.  Thanks to all of you who have been so indispensable.
