St. Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic parish is a people called by Baptism in which God’s presence is experienced, shared and celebrated. Empowered and enabled by the Spirit, we seek to transmit our Christian heritage, to help those in need, and to be an accepting, loving community for all people. Thus we commit ourselves to faithful witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our pastor is Fr. Bill Long.
