I have never experienced such a well rounded parish since the Vatican 2 reforms! Monsignor Miller is the most pastoral pastor I have ever known. Deacon Mark is very kind...the priest and deacon compliment each other. Both give great homilies. The music program is probably the best in Roanoke...I say.this after experiencing other churches both Catholic and non-Catholic. Kelly does an extraordinary job. The energy is so extremely positive at St, Andrew's and one can appreciate it just as soon as they enter the sanctuary . Everybody seems happy to be there and each Mass is packed to the hilt with the faithful. Such a great place!
Roanoke City Public Schools like to work harder not smarter. It is the most unorganized school system I have ever worked for. People like to turn a blind eye to illegal and unethical actions by favored staff members. The only thing they care about is having passing SOL scores. If your students do not pass then you will more than likely be asked to leave. They do not make sure students really learn important skills they just push them through. I really think it is about time for Rita Bishop to step down. This school system is a wreck.
