Through your generosity, our St. Andrew’s community was able to support the greater community and the work of Metro Caring!

St. Andrew’s Certified as a “Habitat Hero Garden”
Three years ago, several St. Andrew’s gardeners, Diane Jameson, Judie James, and Denny Muirhead, began a renovation project on the long-neglected St. Andrew’s front and Garth gardens. Diane recently applied to Audubon Rockies for Habitat Hero garden designation. Providing habitat for wildlife in our increasingly urban environment is a plus for our parish, our neighbors, and the birds and wildlife which frequent the gardens. The certification letter reads, “Because of the thought and care that you obviously put into designing and nurturing for your garden, you have successfully created habitat for birds and other wildlife.” The St. Andrew’s gardens were certified as a Habitat Hero Garden “SILVER” status. Please take a few minutes to enjoy the gardens along with the birds, butterflies, lady bugs, rabbits, squirrels, bees, and other pollinators. Watch for the “Habitat Hero” yard sign in the near future.

St. Andrew’s Tiny Home Village update
The application for a temporary Tiny Home Village for Women in the Clements Historic District, on land owned by St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, was denied on July 10 by Denver’s Landmark Preservation Commission. St. Andrew’s is committed to continuing this important work with the Colorado Village Collaborative and our partners to complete this project on an alternative site. Interest and enthusiasm for the village continues to grow and to date, substantial funds have been raised from national and local foundations, community fund raisers, individual donors and numerous churches and other non-profit entities to support this project. While the Landmark Commission’s decision is a disappointment, it will not derail this crucial project.
While the choir is on hiatus over the summer months, at the 10:00 service any and all are welcome to sing in Summer Choir. Rehearsal is at 9:00am, the choir does not vest or process, anthems are familiar or easy, and a quartet of staff singers is employed to insure coverage of all parts. Participate just one Sunday, or more consistently as you would like. All are welcome! Just show up at 9:00 on any Sunday.
