Dear Parishioners,

          'Amid the chaos, confusion and frustration of our broken world a child was born just like many others.  Like many mothers, Mary attempted to console Jesus' cries but he came to eventually console our cries.  This Christmas may the birth of Jesus, 'God Saves' soothe our wounds and lift our hopes.  God is with us because God loves us and that love WILL NOT fail.'  - A message from Father Mark

Welcome New Parishioners of 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.

Over a century later, the parish continues to welcome all people into our home.
