MAPLE HEIGHTS, OH [DOM Communications] – St. Andrew Orthodox Church in Maple Heights, OH recently established a partnership with the local health community to use their hall as a distribution center for the COVID-19 vaccine.
In addition to this agreement, the parish has developed other ways in which they could serve the community, including assisting senior citizens with their taxes through American Association of Retired Persons. Christine Hoover, a member of St. Andrew Church commented “Both of these events are handled with all safety precautions in place. We are happy to be able to assist the local community for both of these things.”
The hall also supports local Knights of Columbus meetings and local Boy Scouts gatherings on a weekly basis. This all coincides with their important partnership, their monthly food bank that assists local residents.
“It’s nice to open up our hall to these groups, who give back so much to the community, and to help out the local citizens of the community.”
St. Andrew Church was established on January 31, 1963. The cornerstone was blessed on August 25, 1968 by His Eminence, the Most Reverend John, Archbishop of Chicago and Minneapolis Diocese. The community is active in their local community serving and ministering to a diverse community. For more information about parish life, please visit www.standreweoc.org
