Our name “San Andres” was derived from the apostle, Saint Andrew, because we are looking for others like “Peter”, the Apostle, who serve, love and proclaim the Lord Jesus more and better than we can.


An evangelized Church, who evangelizes, evangelizes with great power, with the strength of the Gospel and the Parresia of the Holy Spirit.

Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Mk 16:15

Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth)

Social Justice group working for justice, and putting into action the Kingdom of God.

"All people have the right to live. They have the right to bodily integrity and to the means necessary for the proper development of life, particularly food, clothing, shelter, medical care, rest, and, finally, the necessary social services. In consequence, all people have the right to be looked after in the event of ill health; disability stemming from their work; widowhood; old age; enforced unemployment; or whenever through no fault of their own they are deprived of the means of livelihood."

- John XXIII “Pacem In Terris” (Peace on Earth) 1963
