State Budget Impasse

With the Pennsylvania State Budget in peril, our food pantry is about to face some very serious challenges ahead. As we enter the holiday season, we are anticpating that our shelves will start to become bare. Our pantry relies heavily upon the State to supplement our food supply. Below are sample letters you can fill-in and mail to the Governor, your State Senator or State Represenative. Please take a minute of your time to advocate for our pantry. 


Here is the Governor's Address:


Governor’s Correspondence Office
508 Main Capitol Building
Harrisburg, PA 17120


Below is also a file with contact information for your Legislators. 


Also, please feel free to also email the lawmakers.

A Welcome Message from our Rector:


Dear Friend,


Thank you for visiting the web site of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Allentown, PA.  I want to welcome you to this site wherever on life’s path you may be.  Hopefully within these pages you will get a glimpse of our faith community and what it may offer you on your own spiritual path and journey.


We are a diverse community and worship together as a family in all of our differences and variety. Our worship is typically Anglican and each week we gather to celebrate the Lord’s Supper at 8AM and 10:30AM on Sundays.  


If you are seeking a faith community or want to re-kindle your spiritual life, we invite you to come and walk with us.  You would be most welcome.

What We Do

Stained glass window panels in St. Andrew's Church.

The Five Marks of Mission - The Mission of the Church is the Mission of Christ

“Mission goes out from God. Mission is God’s way of loving and saving the world…” (Lambeth Conference 1998)

In 1990 the world-wide Anglican Communion established and agreed upon five elements of mission of the Church. The recent General Convention of the Episcopal Church affirmed and adopted these and recommended them for study and action in all parishes as the key statement upholding everything we do and are.

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
