About Us

Our parish has had a rich history within the St. Catharines diocese for well over 50 years.
Saint Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic church and parish was established in 1957. Under the zealous leadership and dedicated work of Reverend Father Anton Botek, the determined need of a Catholic Parish in the north-east Welland/Crowland area was identified at a preliminary meeting (1957) held at the Slovak Hall convened by Father Anton Botek STD, with Monsignor Michael Shuba, Father Joseph Dragos, Father Vincent Danco SJ and the Catholic Slovak Community of Welland.
