St. Andrew, Fisherman Feast Day: November 30th and is the Patron Saint of Russia and Scotland. St. Andrew, by trade was a fisherman. He was at first, a disciple of St. John the Baptist but when John pointed to Jesus and said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” Andrew understood that Jesus was greater and followed Him. St. Andrew was the first disciple of Christ. Next, Andrew brought his brother Simon (St. Peter) to Jesus and he too became a disciple of Jesus. He promised to make them fishers of men. They left their trade and followed Him. After Jesus Ascended into Heaven, St. Andrew, it is believed went to Greece to preach the gospel. Saint Andrew is said to have been put to death by being tied to a cross. While on the cross, St. Andrew continued to preach to the people who gathered around the beloved Apostle.
