the brotherhood of st. andrew
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is an international ministry of men within the Anglican Communion. The Brotherhood was incorporated by an Act of Congress in May 30, 1908 signed by President Theodore Roosevelt. It continues in its objective today, which is "the spread of Christ's Kingdom among men AND youth." Its chapter members are called Brothers Andrew who accept and observe the Brotherhood Disciplines of: PRAYER, STUDY AND SERVICE.
We meet every Saturday morning in Graves Hall from 8 am to 9 am. Our meetings begin with a blessing and a hearty breakfast. Following breakfast is a short business meeting and a review of the current intercessory prayer list. The balance of the meeting is dedicated to the study of Holy Scripture.

How did the Brotherhood begin?
A group of twelve young men met regularly for prayer and Bible study at St. James Church, Chicago, Illinois. They asked permission of their rector to form a Brotherhood to reach out and minister to men, following the example of St. Andrew who was called to follow Jesus Christ and brought his brother with him. The first meeting of the Brotherhood was held on St. Andrew's Day, 1883. By 1886 there were over 100 chapters functioning across the U.S. and Canada. The first meeting of chapter representatives coincided with the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Chicago. There it was decided to establish a Central Office to coordinate what was rapidly becoming an international ministry to men. By 1900, chapters had been started in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the Philippines, China, South Africa, Panama, Scotland and Brazil.
Please join us for breakfast, camaraderie, and fellowship any Saturday at 8AM in Graves Hall.
