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.
The Saint Andrew bulletin has an insert page. For your info there is a lot more for you to read about. If you would like click here to read more.
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.
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
