message from our school chaplain
St. Andrew's Academy is first and foremost a community of faith. Faith is what motivates our journey - our journey to excellence, our journey to knowledge and our journey towards wholeness, identity and community. Faith is the source and summit of the values that bind and challenge us. That faith is nourished and sustained in St. Andrew's by daily prayer, our extensive program of religious education, our retreat program, our celebration of the sacraments, our participation in our parish communities and in the wider life of our Diocese and in our times of personal prayer.
When he visited our shores in 2010, Pope Benedict encouraged young people in Catholic schools to become 'holy' - to become a sign of God's presence in an often dark and troubled world. He encouraged them to be Saints of the 21st century and demonstrate in their lives the Gospel values of compassion, mercy and love accompanied an unerring commitment to justice and peace.
As a school, our vocation, is to help our young people answer that challenge with conviction and generosity.
Come follow me (Mark 1:17)
Jesus Christ - yesterday, today and tomorrow
