Magazine Update


The Tennessee Register, November 29th, p.7 has an article at the top of the page suggesting we “stay awake” to small ways we can imitate Christ this season. Visiting a lonely neighbor, smiling at an overworked store clerk, sending a Christmas card to someone who otherwise won’t receive any, or even saying a silent prayer to a rude person at the checkout, are all Christ like ways to act especially during Advent.

​​Please return the paper magazines so others can read them.







Use the painted parking spaces only.



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. To join, contact Deb Baldwin at

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. For details, call Deb Baldwin at 739-9801 or e-mail her at

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.
