St. Andrew's Cuba Mission
In 2010, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church established a 10-year covenant partnership with the Presbyterian Church in Santa Clara, Cuba as part of a long-standing partnership established between the Presbytery of the Cascades, of which St. Andrew's is a member, and the Central Presbytery of Cuba, of which Santa Clara is a member. These partnerships are for the purposes of strengthening the Cuban Presbyterian Church which experienced great persecution until 1990, and which has endured much economic hardship. An equally important goal is peacemaking between the two churches and our two countries. Every two years St. Andrew's sends a team to Santa Clara, Cuba to provide financial support, bring medicines and other needed supplies, also to develop relationships with our Cuban sisters and brothers. Team members discover that this time of community brings rich rewards and lasting friendships. St. Andrew's holds bi-annual auction/dinner to raise funds for the Santa Clara Church and for furthering the goals of the partnership. The auction is a festive evening featuring great food, terrific auction items, entertainment, and fellowship with friends from all over the community. There are many opportunities to learn more about the partnership, assist with the auction and to travel with the team. To learn more about the St. Andrew's Cuba Partnership contact Marilyn Roberts.
