The Brotherhood of Saint Andrew is an international ministry of men within the Anglican Communion with corporate offices in Ambridge, PA. The Brotherhood was incorporated by an Act of the United States Congress and signed by President Theodore Roosevelt on May 30, 1908. That Act states, “the sole object of said corporation shall be the spread of Christ’s Kingdom among men”. The Good Shepherd Chapter was initially installed in September of 2003.
During the past year, the Brotherhood has been involved in various activities in our Parish including our annual Saint Andrew’s Day Luncheon and Christmas Toy Drive in November. The brothers prepare lunch for the entire parish with the price of admission a new toy to be donated to needy children. This year the toys were donated to The Kroc Center in Camden, NJ. Additionally, the Brotherhood also donated large print bibles to a nursing home in Philadelphia where Stuart Lynd, Jr. was employed.
The members of the Brotherhood frequently are asked to perform service tasks for the Parish and for members of the Parish, such as Holly Fair and greening of the Church.
Every meeting incorporates prayer, study, and service-oriented discussions. We are committed to the spread of Christ’s kingdom through our thoughts, words, and deeds.
Meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM. Our meetings are open to all men, young and old.
