St. Andrew is one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ and the brother of Simon Peter. Jesus called them from their fishing boats and promised to make them “fishers of men”. He spread the gospel to Greece, where he was martyred. He is thought to have been crucified on an X-shaped cross, which is now known as a St. Andrew’s cross.
St. Andrew is the patron saint of fishermen, rope-makers, and textile workers. His feast day is November 30.
