ANNUAL REPORTS: In preparation of our Annual Meeting on February 2 nd , we have started gathering the various segments of the Annual Report. If you are in charge of a ministry area, please submit your report to the office no later than January 15, 2020 .
Pledge envelopes for 2020 are in the Narthex. Please look carefully for your NAME as some pledge numbers have changed this year. If you need envelopes, please contact Carole in the office at (781) 826-2062.

What are your dreams for the future of St. Andrew's? Join us directly after the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. services on Sunday, January 26th when we will have an appreciative inquiry discussion about our parish and our hopes for the future. Appreciative inquiry draws first on our perceived strengths and blessings to assist us in articulating a vision for our future. The sessions will be lead by Helen Daly, our Diocesan Congregational Development consultant. Our new vestry will use this input as we begin to formulate our strategic. Come and share your experience and vision for the future.
We are currently recruiting for parishioners to serve as members of our vestry and as officers for 2020. Vestry terms are for three years and officers serve one year (with the possibility of continuing in their roles). Elections are held at our Annual Meeting in February. As members of the vestry, a parishioner offers their skills and leadership to our parish and works alongside the rector in the administration of the church and helps to plan the vision for our community. Our vestry meets monthly after the 10:00 service. If you are interested in being considered for vestry or as an officer, please let Fr. Kevin or Warden Brian Joyce know. 


Construction of our new directory has begun. If you have not already had your picture taken by Eric Westby, please make arrangements to see him between services or during coffee hour to get your photo taken. If you have any address, phone or email changes, please email them to the Carole at
