Saint Andrew Catholic Church and School


Welcome to Saint Andrew! We are a Catholic faith community that aspires to be welcoming, joyful, vibrant and prayerful. Our liturgy is life-giving and energizing, with beautiful music and an inspiring message. Our mission priorities include:

  • our Catholic school for students from preschool through sixth grade, (expanding to seven and eight in 2024/25, 2025/26)
  • faith formation programs for children, teens and adults,
  • community service and outreach,
  • prayer and Eucharistic adoration, and
  • issues of charity and social justice.

Approximately 6,800 parishioners call the Church of Saint Andrew in Elk River, Minnesota, their spiritual home, and our Catholic school has roughly 160 children in preschool through our upper grades. 

Mission Statement

We, as a Catholic faith community, cast wide our net in welcoming all people as Christ. In a spirit of generosity, we utilize our time, talent and treasure to educate and serve one another.

At Saint Andrew, we are building the Kingdom of God here and now through the witnessing of a lived faith. God calls each of us to Himself and showers His grace and mercy upon all who answer that call, holding nothing back so that in all things the love of Jesus is manifested. We hope you will join us!
