An Invitation to a Time of Prayer and Discernment
– August 2021

During these summer days, the Transition Team invites the St. Andrew’s church community to continue the work of transition through prayer.  Each week you are invited to reflect on a short reading and to lift up in prayer a specific area of the life of the congregation. – Click *here* to view the readings and to find out more about this important opportunity.
