Current and former parishioners are invited to the Mass in the church located at School Lane and Foss Avenue in Drexel Hill and afterward for a celebration at Springfield Country Club.
The parish was founded in July 1916 when Archbishop Edmond Prendergast sent Father Joseph McShain to Drexel Hill to find suitable land to build a church. From its humble beginnings in a home on Burmont Road, St. Andrew Parish grew from 55 founding members to nearly 5,000 today.
At a time in history when many parishes and schools are consolidating or closing their doors, St. Andrew continues to grow. Rising enrollment in the parish school and a growing number of ministries and community outreach programs has prompted the parish to embrace a capital campaign.
It will provide a much-needed gymnasium for children and a parish center for the community.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
