Fr. Andrew More O’Connor
Fr. Andrew More O’Connor is a Roman Catholic Diocesan priest ordained by the Archdiocese of New York in 1996 and is currently the pastor at Saint Mary Grand on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Previously, he served at the Church of the Holy Family on Castle Hill Avenue in the Bronx and at Holy Trinity parish on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In addition to his service of the Archdiocese, he is a visual artist and feels that church and art must go together like subject and verb, more so now because the paradigms of the sacred shift along with our lives.
He founded a non-profit organization, SacredArtHeals, in 2000, in order to collaborate with artists. His projects have been tried and tested in Catholic parishes from Paris, France, to Pascagoula, Mississippi, and are meant to be copied. In 2004, Fr. Andrew founded Goods of Conscience, as a means of artistic expression and parish community.
