We will begin a new candidate on his Masonic journey at this Stated Communication.  Remember that our first impression of the fraternity begins here, so be in attendance and welcome him warmly.

St. Andrew, Brother of St. Peter and one of the Twelve Apostles. The Russians hold him in the highest reverence, as do the people of Scotland, and the Freemasons of that country honor him as one of their Patrons. His feast is celebrated on November 30th , the reputed day of his death. Scripture informs us that he was the son of Jonas, a fisherman in Galilee. Andrew inrtoduced his brother to Jesus, a circumstance which has invested him with special eminence. They abode a day with the Saviour after which they returned to their trade as fishermen. Some months later, Jesus, meeting them while they were fishing, called them to Him promising to make them fishers of men. Thereupon they left their nets and followed him.

After the Ascension there is no further mention of St. Andrew, but tradition assigns Scythia, Greece, and Thrace as the scenes of his missionary labors, and asserts he was martyred on November 30, A..D. 70.

The Roman proconsul, it is said, angered because St. Andrew converted his wife, caused him to be first flogged and then crucified. The cross upon which he suffered was shaped like the letter X. He was fastened to it by chords instead of nails, to produce a lingering death by hunger and thirst.

He is depicted in Christian art as an old man with long, white hair and beard, and leaning on a cross like the letter X, termed St. Andrew's Cross.
