Brotherhood of St. Andrew
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a United States evangelical religious organization with objectives similar to those of the Brotherhood of Andrew and Philip, though membership is limited to men of the Episcopal Church. The Brotherhood was organized June 12, 1896, and in 1914 had 1,200 active chapters, with a membership of about 14,000 men. It also includes a junior department to train young men and older boys for Christian work. In 1914, the latter has 400 chapters in the United States, with a membership numbering about 5,000. A similar general organization was formed in the Scottish Episcopal Church, while chapters of the Brotherhood have also been formed in the Episcopal Church in Australia and Canada.
