Gifts Given – A story of why Andrea Keefe chooses to give…

My husband Kevin and I have felt a connection to St. Andrew from our early days as parishioners ten years ago. As a newly married couple, we wanted to find a place of worship where we would not only feel welcome, but also feel like we could give back. God has blessed us abundantly in our lives and what a better way to show our gratitude than by sharing our talents and gifts with our faith community. By serving in various ministries and supporting St. Andrew, we feel like we are on a journey to become, as author Matthew Kelly puts it, the “best versions of ourselves.” We have met wonderful families at St. Andrew and, as our children begin their early years at our school, we believe that we’re setting them up for success as faith-based and service-based lifelong learners. We are grateful for our parish and school! Please join us in sharing YOUR gifts to continue to make this community even more vibrant in the years to come because as Saint Peter says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10).
