Friends of Saint Andrew began as the brainchild of a small group of Queen of Peace parishioners and the Pastor sometime during the fall of 1986. Initially, this group saw the need for homeless persons to have a place to get in out of the elements, have a cup of coffee and a pastry and have access to newspapers for job hunting; they decided to lend a helping hand by creating our parish outreach ministry. After a few short years, this vision blossomed into much more than its humble beginnings.
