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. For more information contact Father Stephen DeLacy, vocation director, at 610-667-5778. (Photos by Sarah Matour)
