San Andres is a dynamic Episcopal church in Yonkers serving a primarily Latino congregation. Our congregations partner together throughout the year in a variety of ways; our young people enjoy coming together to work on projects and worship, and our congregation joyfully aids San Andres' food pantry. Mother Yamily Bass-Choate, the Bishop’s Vicar at San Andres, has spoken to the Working Women’s Fellowship, helped organize our mission trip to Cuba, and occasionally joins us on our annual pilgrimage to the Monastery at Taizé.
Center Lane is the only LGBTQ community center for teens in Westchester County, serving as a place of emotional and social support.

Center Lane hosts daily drop-in hours, weekly organized groups, and special events throughout the year.
