Mass Intentions

We are now able to schedule Mass intentions by phone only (the parish office remains closed to the public).  To schedule a Mass intention, please call the office Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30am-12:30pm.  Donations for Mass intentions may be mailed to the office or dropped in the offertory with "Mass Intention" in the memo.  We are unable to distribute Mass cards to parishioners at this time; however, parish staff will mail Mass cards directly from the office to the recipient upon request.  

 

Ministry Leader Meetings

Fr. Andrew is looking forward to meeting with the ministry leaders of our parish ministries.  If you are a ministry leader and have not yet had a chance to meet with Fr. Andrew, please contact the parish office at 410-974-4366 to arrange an in-person or virtual meeting.  

 

Homemade Nametags for Mass

Parishioners are invited to make a homemade nametag and wear to Mass to assist Fr. Andrew in getting to know our parishioners.  Due to safety guidelines, we are not permitted to distribute nametags at this time.  Feel free to keep these simple or get creative and use a picture if you'd like. 

 

Preschool Update

If all goes as planned, St. Andrew by the Bay Preschool will start on schedule in the fall!  Our first day of classes will be Tuesday, September 8.  We are going to be changing things up a little to be in cooperation with social distancing regulations.

  • Teachers will most likely wear masks all day, but definitely at drop-off and pick-up.
  • Drop-off and pick-up will be via parking lot to limit the number of people in the building.
  • Toys and surfaces will be cleaned multiple times a day.
  • Children will practice standing with their arms out to their sides to keep distance between each other.
  • Hand sanitizing stations have been installed in every classroom.

We will have spaces available in our MWT & T/Th 2s, T/Th 3s, and M-F 4’s.  (These are all morning classes.)

Upcoming Dates:

August 26 – Orientation for parents new to the preschool, 6:30pm in the Upper Hall 

August 27 – Classroom open houses 

September 8 – First day of school for T/Th classes

September 9 – First day of school for MWF classes
