St Andrew's Day

St Andrew the Apostle (early 1st century – mid to late 1st century AD), called in the Orthodox tradition Prōtoklētos (Πρωτόκλητος) or the first-called, one of the Twelve, was the brother of Saint Peter.

Advent begins on the nearest Sunday to St Andrew's Day, and is the period of preparation for the celebration of our welcoming of the Light into the World. Its name comes from the Latin "adventus."
