Formation and Outreach
Faith Formation Ministries
Are you interested in sharing the Catholic faith with children, youth or adults in the parish? Our Faith Formation programs are always seeking active disciples to be living witnesses, sharing their knowledge of the Church and personal relationship with Jesus with others as catechists, Confirmation sponsors, or RCIA sponsors. For more information, contact Faith Formation Secretary Lori Iannuzzelli at 763-441-1483 x305.
The Church of Saint Andrew is actively engaged with the following organizations in our parish and the surrounding community:
- Abba Pregnancy Resource Center
- Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud
- Community Aid Elk River (CAER) Food Shelf
- Council of Catholic Women
- Great River Faith In Action
- Knights of Columbus Council #5296
- Meals on Wheels: Elk River Senior Dining
- Respect Life Committee
- Secular Franciscans San Damiano Fraternity
- Social Justice Mission Outreach (email Jim Schroeder)
In addition, our Faith Formation staff organizes two SAINTS (Serving Anyone In Need Together Selflessly) projects each month during the program year so families and youth can get involved in serving in the community.
We also have a number of community-building groups within the parish, including:
- Baptismal Blanket Ministry
- Prayer Shawl Ministry
- Saint Andrew Quilts and Crafts
