Need a ride to Sunday services or some other St. Andrew's event?
Bad weather making you nervous? Car in the shop? Given up driving? No problem!
We can help with weekly or one-time transportation. Membership Commission member Dick Dabrowski is currently coordinating St. Andrew's Share-A-Ride Program. Please speak with him at coffee hour after the 10:00 a.m. service on Sundays or telephone him at his home (978-448-3264). He will match you up with a St. Andrew's volunteer driver in your neighborhood.

Woven Cross Logo of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts

Mission Strategy Draft Forum
It's time to create a new mission strategy for the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. A mission strategy is a plan for our future. It identifies our priorities, so we know how to best use our financial, staff and other resources. Our mission strategy is a response to the particular gifts of our diocese and the changing needs of our communities in eastern Massachusetts. It identifies the ways that we hope to answer Jesus' call to be disciples together.

The draft mission strategy will be available in early August. After its release, a team from the diocese will hold six forums in parishes around the diocese allowing time to imagine how this mission strategy might shape our life together in the years ahead. Areas needing strengthening or retooling may be adjusted after these forums as the team readies a proposed mission strategy for the 2016 Diocesan Convention in November. Click here to read more about the New Mission Strategy.

Please join us today for the last of the six Mission Strategy Draft Forums. Everyone's opinion matters!
