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.

Saint Andrew Ladies Guild -
Pope Pius IX officially named the Blessed Virgin Mary, under her title of the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States. This was in response to the petition of the American Bishops at the Sixth Council of Baltimore.
Due to the world wide virus the Ladies Guild meetings have been canceled for the rest of the season.
"Most Holy Trinity we put the United State of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to you. Through her we wish to thank you for the great resources of this land and for the freedom which has been its heritage. Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic church in America. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government. Grant us a fruitful economy born of justice and charity. Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life on the nation..." And in the prayer include all nations.
