St. Andrew’s Outreach Ministry Update

The growing impact that heroin use has had on the people and parish community of Pickerington is one that has become a focus for the Outreach Team of St. Andrew’s.  This issue has impacted us not only personally, but also professionally, and spiritually. If you are interested in joining the cause to offer support, love, and hope to God’s children who fight opiate addiction, please contact us at office@nullstandrewspickerington.org.

Below you can find a listing of the various ways we seek to serve all people.
