The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a missionary and evangelism ministry of the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion. We are the oldest evangelistic ministry of the Episcopal Church and in continuous service for over 120 years. The Brotherhood of St. Andrew was founded in 1883 on St. Andrew’s Day and later incorporated by an Act of the U.S. Congress signed on May 30, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. The act stated, “the sole object of said corporation shall be the spread of Christ’s Kingdom among men.”
The Brotherhood chapter at St. Paul’s currently meets on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m.(taking a break during the summer). Meetings begin with dessert and continue with worship, business centered on service in the parish and the community, and study.
Special events led by the Brotherhood:
- Hosting of the Shrove Tuesday Pancake supper (cooking and serving)
- An annual Wine Tasting fundraising event each Spring (usually in April, post-Easter Day)
- Oktoberfest (need we say more?) The second of three major fundraisers
- The Annual Christmas Tree, Wreath, and Greenery sale – pick up date is always the Sunday following Thanksgiving.
