"Do you feel far from sainthood? St. Andrew's Parish wants to help you
on your journey to holiness."
Dear Friends in Christ,
St. Andrew's Parish welcomes you and your family! We give witness of our faith in Jesus Christ through joyful worship, the formation of young people and adults, and service to the Gladstone community. Our mission is to:
I hope this site will help you get to know us better and, in so doing, discover something new about the Good News Jesus shares with the world.
St. Andrew the Apostle has an exceptional Pre-K through Grade 8 School where we educate the mind, heart, and spirit of our young people. We believe that children are the heart of the Kingdom of God. Together with family and community we are called to support children’s spiritual and human development. The curriculum is tied intimately with the Church, and we communicate the full, authentic Catholic faith.
St. Andrew has a comprehensive catechetical program, including faith formation for Pre-K to 6th, EDGE, LifeTeen, young adults, RCIA, and many Adult classes. Our Pre-K formation is based on the model of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. The Montessori method is utilized to joyfully introduce the child to Jesus and the teaching of the Church. Junior High uses the EDGE program. EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth ministry experience created for early adolescents in grades, six, seven, and eight. The EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents. Kids are always welcomed and encouraged to bring their friends to The EDGE. High School uses Life Teen–the Eucharist-based ministry has the power to transform teens, transform parishes, and transform culture.
Our parish groups and ministries offer a way for you and your family to connect to the parish, to serve others, and to grow in Spirit. I pray that you will join us as we worship, serve and grow in our love of Jesus Christ and each other.
Your Brother in Christ,
Father Vincent M. Rogers, Pastor
