The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a ministry "for the spread of Christ's Kingdom among men and youth in the Episcopal and Anglican Communion". Members follow a rule of prayer, study and service and strive to model responsible evangelistic behavior. First founded in 1883 by a small group of young Episcopalians at a downtown Chicago church, there are currently 25 chapters in the Diocese of Texas.

  • learn what is going on
  • elect the officers 
  • decide on the next years' efforts.
  • Date for 2019 is Saturday, January 19 at Good Shepherd, 715 Carrell St., Tomball, TX 77375 beginning at 8:30 a.m. with continental breakfast. Meeting begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 2 p.m. Lunch included, $10 donation. 

Annual Fall Retreat
The Diocesan Brotherhood Assembly gathers high-risk youth at Camp Allen for a weekend of fun, food and challenge conducted in prayer, study and witness. This is a weekend where members of the Diocesan Brotherhood Chapters come together in a common effort to promote the understanding and importance of having Jesus Christ at the center of one's life.
