"Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me."
St. Andrew By-The-Sea believes it is important that we are all "Living It!" That is, living out our faith in Christ by being servants to others. There are many ways we serve in the lowcountry, in our nation and in our world. We sense a calling to our neighbors both near and far.
