Members Resources

Brotherhood Chapters

A chapter is supported by a parish and typically has a “sponsor” attached to it. Sponsor examples would include a Diocesan Coordinator, Province President, or any other member of the National Council.

To form a chapter, there must be a minimum of five members, including the parish rector or other clergy. That clergyperson may be male or female. There are provisions for females to be members. They are called “Associate Members.” If they aren’t clergy, they would use the general membership form, either from the 2nd or 3rd link below. Of course, as time progresses new members will be added.

As additional new members become part of the chapter, please use the following form or the ‘Join the Brotherhood of St. Andrew’ link below.

Individuals beyond the initial chapter wishing to join may use the following link. They will need a debit/credit card, or a personal PayPal account to complete the process. Please note you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay via PayPal.

The Chapter Development Guide provides operation basics and other key information that guide activities for a Brotherhood Chapter.  More detailed information is referenced in this document to existing website links.  The style of this document is to be guidance – not detailed rules.  This document has been compiled from prior information in our Brotherhood archives and is meant to be what is needed in one place.  The guide can be found here or at the link below.

We anticipate this document being one that can be added to, changed, etc., as we move forward.  We will learn items of value that need to be updated, added, and changed and ask that as you use this document, you provide that feedback to our National Office.

A critical section of the document that is instrumental in effective Chapter Development is the role of the Chapter Sponsor.

Chapter Directors are the presiding officer/leader of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew chapter, charged with creating an environment where chapter members will live the Brotherhood of St. Andrew’s mission and grow with Jesus Christ. They coordinate planning for regularly scheduled meetings for worship, study, and chapter events. They are the key chapter contact, interacting with the local parish, diocese, province and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew National Office as needed.  The chapter director completes an annual report on chapter activities for the Brotherhood of St. Andrew’s national office.

Most importantly, the Chapter Director exercises leadership of the chapter following the Brotherhood of St. Andrew’s disciplines of Prayer, Study, and Service and that they facilitate their chapter’s outreach efforts in the parish and surrounding community.
