Saint Andrew

Saint Andrew is the patron saint of fishermen. He is also the patron saint of Scotland and Russia.

Both Andrew and his brother Simon Peter were fishermen and became Christ’s first disciples. Christ promised to make them ‘fishers of men’ and persuaded Andrew and Simon Peter to leave their nets and follow him.
