St andrew’s Day

St Andrew’s relics are in Amalfi Cathedral crypt.

As we enter Advent, the first weekday Monday 30 November is St Andrew’s Day

St Andrew is the patron of Amalfi , Barbados, Greece, Russia, Scotland, the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul and fishermen.

It’s a holiday in Barbados where the crest of the coat of arms is two sugar cane stalks forming a St Andrew’s cross.

The Saxon church at Greensted-Juxta-Ongar in Essex, the oldest log building, is dedicated to St Andrew.

Andrew is one of the Apostles.
