Tree of Life
The St. Andrew community "Tree of Life" is a beautiful metal tree in the northwest corner of the Church Sanctuary. Glass Ovals, inscribed with names of children who have died, are attached to the tree.
A section of our beautiful parish Prayer Garden is also dedicated to our Angel Connection ministry. It is located on the left as you enter the main gate of Garden.
Soulful Crafts meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00pm in Room D. Its focus is the healing process of grieving parents and significant others. Time spent together in Soulful Crafts meetings is devoted to mutual support, conversation, and craft projects.
