WELCOME

Circa 1575, the church of St. Andrew was built at the dawn of Christianity in Bombay (Mumbai). For over four centuries, it has withstood the fury of the Monsoons and political upheaval. While even a visitor from the 16th century would instantly recognize this heritage church, it has evolved into a vibrant Parish of the 21st century. We invite you, dear Visitor, to take a tour around our website.

 

 

VISION

To be a worshipping community, reaching out to others in love and service, empowering the youth, inspiring families to live and spread the Gospel values.

We live in a sinful world, which we navigate imperfectly while attached to our own selfish desires. Thanks to the wonders of the modern age, those attachments can be instantly satisfied. In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds the wealthy man, who has observed all the commandments, that he can only enter God’s kingdom when he sacrifices that to which he is most attached — his wealth. The Israelites assumed that all that was required of them was observance of the law. Jesus makes it plain, in this passage, that mechanical adherence to the law will not suffice. Jesus challenges those who possess wealth to act in the role of steward rather than as owner, redirecting it to those who truly need it. Sadly, wealth can become a trap, not because it’s sinful to be wealthy, but because it leads us to believe that it is more important than God. We would do well to remember Jesus’ admonition: It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of the needle* than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. (*this is a reference to an extremely narrow gateway)
