St. Andrew Parish has a long history of working for social justice. This commitment flows from our faith and Gospel values. The Parish sponsors a number of social justice events throughout the year.

Focus for Lent 2020 – Ecojustice
Parish Book Reading & Discussion
All parishioners are invited to read Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, On Care for Our Common Home – Laudato Si’. There will be three reflections given during Mass with small table discussion groups to follow in the Community Center. Coffee and pastries will be provided. The book is readily available at this website. You can read online, download a pdf, or purchase the book. 
The Ecojustice Team is coordinating this event and we invite you to participate as an action for Lent rather than giving something up. The discussion dates are:
  • March 1st – chapters 1 & 2
  • March 15th – chapters 3 & 4
  • March 29th – chapters 5 & 6
Childcare will be provided in the Oscar Romero room. We will show Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” rated PG and and “Born to be Wild” rated G. Common Sense Media  recommends both films for ages 5 and up.  Please, register after Mass  on February 23rd or 29th for childcare. Or email Lisa Hatten at
