Welcome to Saint Andrew Church

In 1870, Portuguese, Irish, and German Catholics headed by John Vincent approached Bishop Mullen and asked that a church be built to serve the people in the Northwestern part of Erie, many of whom were fishermen.  The church was built at 6th and Raspberry Streets and dedicated to Saint Andrew, the fisherman, July 16, 1871 with Reverend J. McCabe as the first pastor.  The original church burned and was rebuilt at 7th and Raspberry in 1915.

Honoring our Patron, Saint Andrew, our churches history and generations of parishioners, we welcome all into our home.

Our outreach programs include: a pantry which provides food, clothing, prayer, a community garden and luncheons; a Faith Formation Program with a special class for people who have special needs; weekly  bible studies; daily rosary; and religious  services to nearby senior living centers.

As our population and campus age, we humbly seek community support, inviting you to be a part of protecting a beautiful community of people that remain dedicated to supporting the mission of Jesus to love God and neighbor.

Dear Faith Formation Families….

 Let's put ourselves into the hands of the Lord, and pray that

God will bless us and our families during the wonderful months

of summer. May we all help make our home a place of relaxation,

joy, love, peace and safety.


Summer Prayer

 Walk along beside me, Jesus,

as I begin the months of summer.

As I work, play, enjoy family time

and friendships, may I hear Your

voice within me, guiding me toward

all that is right and good.

Give me faith in Your presence,

knowing that You walk beside me

in everything I do.

Gracious and loving Jesus,

thank You for the gift of summer.

May the warmth of its sun and the

beauty of its light remind me daily

of Your love for me.                 Amen
