One Book One Parish 2016  [CHURCH]

St. Andrew Parish is participating in a year-long program for the spiritual wellness and renewal of its members called One Book One Parish.
This initiative came out of Parish Transformation that began last Spring. For this program, St. Andrew Parish has a gift for each household in the parish. The book “Seven Keys to Spiritual Wellness” by Joe Paprocki was given to parishioners on the feast of the Epiphany, January 2 and 3, 2016. If your household did not receive this book, come by the parish office during business hours to pick up a copy.
