Liturgical Ministries


St. Andrew by the Sea Catholic Church offers many opportunities for our parishioners to become more involved in the beautiful celebration of the Mass. We encourage all members of our parish, young and old, to prayerfully consider offering your special talents and time to serving in one of our weekly Masses.
