Our Parish

Welcome to the Catholic Community of St. Andrew in Elk River, Minnesota! People describe our faith community as welcoming, joyful, vibrant, and prayerful.  Our priorities include education of the very young who attend Sunday School sessions, Children’s Liturgy of the Word, Little Saints Preschool, St. Andrew Catholic School (grades K-5), Faith Formation programs for all our youth as well as dynamic Youth Ministry and Adult Faith Formation.  Ours is a community of outreach especially through CAER (Community Aid Elk River).  Social Justice themes weave throughout our programs, organizations and preaching. Our Liturgy is always life-giving and energizing, and our liturgical music is inspiring and of high quality.  Around 6,800 parishioners call St. Andrew their spiritual home.  Our parish is located in the far south eastern corner of the Diocese of St. Cloud. 

We welcome you to look through our web site.  Meet the staff, discover St. Andrew School and other programs, refer to the schedules for Mass times and the times we celebrate the other sacraments, and much more.
