Saint Andrew

Our Chuirch is "The Parish Church of Saint Andrew", but I have not yet discovered why nor when it was dedicated so.

However, Saint Andrew - sometimes referred to as "Andrew the Apostle" - was known as Jesus's first disciple, and his recruitment is described in the Gospel of St. Matthew 10:2.

Born: Bethsaida, Galilee, Israel
Baptised by John the Baptist
Curiously, the name "Andrew" is Greek, not Hebrew.
Died: 30 November 60 AD, Patras, Greece
Place of burial: Church of the Holy Apostles, Istanbul, Turkey (Demolished 1461)
Feast: 30 November
Parents: Jonah and Joanna
Siblings: Saint Peter
