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.

St. Andrew Parish response to Archbishop Sample’s Statement on Gender Identity

Over the last several weeks, St. Andrew parishioners have written postcards to Archbishop Sample responding to the recent statement and guidelines for K-12 Catholic schools, and in support of our LGBTQ community. At a recent mass, the “St. Andrew Community Statement” responding to the Archbishop’s statement, which was written collaboratively by a committee and reviewed by many parishioners in recent weeks, was read aloud at the end of mass, and more parishioners signed on after mass. Soon, this St. Andrew statement and an accompanying letter to Archbishop Sample (also cowritten by St. Andrew parishioners) will be delivered directly to him, in hopes for some dialogue in weeks to come.

If you would like to share your personal response to the Archbishop’s Statement but haven’t yet had a chance to do so, we encourage you to register your response virtually by filling out this Google Form . Feel free to share the form broadly—we’d love to elicit responses from concerned Catholics across the city.

Thursday Demonstrations for BLM

We gather each Thursday from noon to 1 PM on Alberta St between 8th and 9th Avenues in solidarity with our Black neighbors.

We understand racism is systemic and will not be eradicated with a protest. We are focused on antiracism within our walls as well as in our neighborhood and city.

We welcome all people into our church and we hope everyone will feel welcome and see themselves in our community.
