Parish Transformation

Welcome to the Saint Andrew Parish Transformation Page!

“I hope that all communities will devote the necessary effort to advancing along the path of a pastoral and missionary conversion which cannot leave things as they presently are. ‘Mere administration’ can no longer be enough. Throughout the world, let us be ‘permanently in a state of mission.’” Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel, #25

Parish Transformation is all about just that: Transformation. It’s about becoming – and being – the best that Saint Andrew can be. It is about moving beyond doing things as we have always done them, and daring to imagine exciting new possibilities for deepening our sense of mission, our connection to Christ, and our communion as a community of faith.

Here you will find several resources which will help you get a better sense of what Parish Transformation is all about – a brief video, produced by members of the Parish Transformation team, a brochure outlining the process, and a copy of our final plan – including many of the initiatives chosen by our Parish Transformation committee in the Fall of 2014.
