More than 50 high school-age and young adult men gathered with many of the priests from the 21 parishes comprising Deanery 5 in Montgomery County to learn more about the diocesan priesthood during the St. Andrew’s Dinner on Thursday, May 11. The dinner was held at St. Eleanor Parish in Collegeville and hosted by the Deanery 5 Vocation Task Force.
The event began with Evening Prayer followed by dinner and vocation stories by Father Stephen Paolino of St. Aloysius Parish in Pottstown and Father Philip Forlano of St. Stanislaus Parish in Lansdale. After sharing a meal and fellowship with the local priests, the young men asked questions of a panel of four priests. Young men in Montgomery County were invited to the dinner by their parish priests and school ministers. The St. Andrew’s Dinner is an outreach of the Vocation Office for the Diocesan Priesthood.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
