Long Description:
1890-91 St. Andrew’s Church was established as a mission parish with eight families. It was served largely by mission priests who came twice monthly and on the great feasts of the church year. Prior to this time, Catholics had to travel to Dayton, Fletcher, St. Michael or Anoka for Mass. Most people went to Anoka. The reasons why St. Andrew was chosen as the parish’s patron saint are lost to history.
