Transitions at St. Andrew’s

St. Andrew’s is going through a number of transitions.

Rector Search Process
Our rector Peter Strimer retired in December 2014. The Rev. Connie Carlson currently retired in 2016. Read about the search process for our new rector here.

Music Ministry
The new rector will hire a new Music Director. Read more here.

Brighton House
Brighton House has been part of a transitional program since 2010. The funding for this program is ending. In June 2016 the current tenants moved out and this rental home received much needed repairs. Read history of Brighton House here.

GEORGE: Center for Community
The Diocese of Olympia closed GEORGE in June 2016. Read more here.

Low-Income Counseling
The insurance policy of the Diocese of Olympia does not include counseling services at churches. For this reason, The Center at St. Andrew’s no longer offers counseling. Individuals seeking low-income counseling may apply for these services at Samaritan Center of Puget Sound.

Sister Church Relationships
Our Sister Church is St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Nakiwogo, Uganda. In the past, St. Andrew’s partners have included Holy Family Episcopal Church in Raineh, Israel and St. Andrew’s in New Orleans.
