ST. ANDREW’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH
17 SOUTH AVENUE
BEACON, NEW YORK 12508
The Holy Eucharist
Wednesdays in Lent
Stations of the Cross
The Episcopal Church observes the seasonal telling of our foundational narrative of God working through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. These seasons and their meanings are an important rhythm of our spiritual life and are one of the many reasons that a complete representation of the Faith requires regular attendance all year round. The observance of the church seasons celebrates God’s participation with us in time and immerses us again and again in our stories of faith, that we might move faithfully with God into the future. Our seasonal observance of Lent begins with the ashes of Ash Wednesday.
Saint Andrew's is an Episcopal parish within the Diocese of New York.. We are a vibrant community that celebrates the faith and sacraments entrusted to us by the Apostles, in the boundless freedom of the Gospel of grace.
The source and summit of our common life in the Spirit is our weekly celebration of the Holy Eucharist wherein the one enduring sacrifice of Christ is made present and effective in our lives.
All baptized Christians are invited to join in the reception of Holy Communion.
The faith family at Saint Andrew's Church makes every effort to be welcoming and embracing. All parishioners contribute their time and talents to the nurture and support of our fellowship in Christ and to the maintenance of the historic and beautiful sanctuary in which we gather for worship.
The parish operates a local food pantry, provides meeting space for Narcotics Anonymous, offers planting space for the Beacon Community Garden Project, and supports the Carpenter's Kids Program in Africa.
If you are a first time visitor, know that you are most welcome. If you have visited with us before, we would be happy to see you again. If you are looking for a faith family, know that we already embrace you as a sister or brother in Christ. If you are searching for God or a deeper knowledge of God, know that you are not alone.
ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH IS WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE.
