Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope you had a great week! 

 

Please check out the important information below, including some volunteer opportunities for Tricky Tray and Junior Achievement. 

 

For our 7th and 8th grade parents, I encourage you to look at the information below on the culture project. At some point, we will have a related presentation at the school, but we are not sure when that will be. Please check out the link and see if attending Sunday would be beneficial for your children. 

  • Culture Project young adult missionaries will be at the Main Church from 5pm to 6pm this Sunday (Jan 23). 

During Catholic Schools Week, we will be collecting canned goods to help conquer hunger! All donations will be given to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Nutritional Development Services  Please bring in donations from Monday, January 24 to Thursday, January 27. All canned goods should be turned in to your child’s homeroom teacher. Any student who participates will be able to dress down for CSW (the themes are below).

This Friday, January 28 will be a $1 dress down day. All money raised will be donated to support a current parishioner, young mother, former Saint Andrew student, and former Saint Andrew CYO coach who is battling cancer. We will send some more details next week.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
