Brothers and Sisters,
Tomorrow is Labor Day and marks the official end of the Summer vacation. Labor Day is an opportunity to thankGod for our gifts and talents which we can use for the benefit of others. It is also a day we can pray for those who are unemployed.

As we ourselves labor at home, school, and in our different fields, we need to be vigilant to maintain a balance between in our schedules. Jesus says to us: “What does it profit a person to gain the whole world and love your soul?”
Pastor’s Question of the Week:  
God desires the salvation of all! How do you see your labor as working toward Salvation?
Pastor’s Question for Children: 
Jesus in the Sacrifice of the Mass and in Communion is our greatest gift. Let us pray: Thank you, dear Savior!
Sincerely in the Lord,
Father Richard York, your Pastor

The Most Reverend John J. Nevins 1932-2014

"At every moment, especially when times were difficult but full of hope, Bishop Nevins entrusted himself to the Virgin Mary," the post said. "May she lead him into the House of Our Father."

We, the St. Andrew Parish will honor
