St. Andrew Dinner

The Vocations Office is excited to launch a new initiative in promoting opportunities for young men to learn more about the priesthood.  The events are known as St. Andrew Dinners and they give young men of high school and college age, along with their parents, a chance to gather with Bishop McGovern, Vocation Director Father Nick Junker, and some of the parish priests for a low-key evening of supper and conversation about priesthood.  

"I think it is important for us to offer opportunities for young men (along with their parents) to hear more about what it's like to be a priest, what goes into the decision to pursue the seminary or religious life, and what are the skills you need to develop in order to hear God's voice," said Bishop McGovern.  "Both young men and their parents have many good questions that they would like answered as they consider the future."

If you are interested in attending one of the St. Andrew Dinners, or have any questions, please contact Father Junker at [email protected] or call him at 618.722.5035.
