PROGRESS ON THE RENOVATION OF ST. ANDREW’S HOUSE FIRST FLOOR!

  • We are happy to report that both the renovation work, and continuing contributions are progressing in a very positive, timely direction.   As of the end of July, parishioners have pledged and given a total of $27,100!  The Diocese granted us an additional $15,000.  This leaves us with only $7,900 more to raise!
  • Come see the physical work accomplished thus far!  After Sunday mass, ask if you can see the renovation work done thus far.  All “invisible” work, such as plumbing and electrical work, has been accomplished, but you can take a gander at our new walls, flooring, and almost completed casework.  Come see, and imagine how much more serviceable the space will be in very short order!
  • For information on how to contribute:  Please ask to speak with our parish Treasurer, Nick Mancino, or to any member of the Vestry.
