We'd like to thank Kathy McPherson for her more than 18 years of faithful service to St. Andrew's and the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. Her last day as our official Parish Administrator was March 31, 2023. There are not enough adjectives to describe everything she has brought to the position and in turn, done for the parish. We will miss her but wish her all the best in her retirement!
Please join us in welcoming our new Parish Administrator Jonathan Gardner, starting April 1, 2023. While many of you already know Jonathan, we look forward to working with him in new ways. Jonathan can be reached at email@example.com or 734-663-0518 ext. 200.
After 8 years, we will say goodbye to Kim Tucker-Gray at the end of April. We thank her for her knowledge and service to the parish and look forward to hearing about her next great adventure!
Please join us in welcoming our new Bookkeeper, Reavis "Rev" Graham, starting April 1, 2023. We look forward to getting to know Rev and working with him. Rev can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-663-0518 ext. 207.
Will You Watch with Me?
Our Lord Jesus asked his disciples to watch with him as he prayed in the garden of Gethsemane.

Please, sign up outside the chapel to keep watch until 10:00 pm on Thursday, April 6, and from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm on Friday, April 7.
St. Andrew’s Gets Outside!

We can’t wait to see you!
