It is with great joy that I welcome all of you to our 2021-22 school year! I feel blessed to be a part of the St. Andrew’s community. I hope that you were all able to spend time with family and friends this summer and are ready for all that awaits you this school year.
Our Archdiocesan Theme, “One Family, One Hope in Christ” certainly speaks to us this year. As I have been welcomed into your community, I have been made to feel like a part of your family. Thank you! And as we continue to face challenges related to COVID-19, there is a new sense of hope for all of us. There is the hope that the wide-spread use of the vaccine will help keep our communities and our loved ones safe. There is the hope that we can once again be with those we care about and celebrate the important occasions in our lives. But above all, as we return to celebrate the Mass in our parishes, there is the hope that only Christ can give overflowing in our hearts. Although we know that things may be different for all of us, we know that we are in it together. Our faith unites us not only as brothers and sisters in Christ, but as a family that comes together to celebrate with each other, to support each other and to pray with each other.
We are truly blessed to be a part of the St. Andrew’s Community. We look forward to welcoming your children and nurturing their spiritual, social, emotional, academic and physical development. Just as a family, we may have different roles, but as we come together as parents, educators, and parishioners we form a team working together to support all our children in reaching their full potential. Let us journey together to continue making St. Andrew’s a welcoming, safe, and supportive family community for our children to learn, grown, play, and pray.
