WHAT IS AN ANDREW DINNER?
Andrew Dinners give priests an opportunity to invite young men, who they think has the qualities needed to be a good priest, to have dinner with an Auxiliary Bishop in their area in a relaxed atmosphere. It gives the young men a chance to ask questions and learn more about the life of a priest and to hear vocation stories from the Bishop, priests and seminarians. It also gives the Bishop a chance to interact and encourage them to follow the Lord's call.
WHY IS IT CALLED ANDREW DINNER?An Andrew Dinner is named after St. Andrew, who in the Gospel according to John, brought his brother Simon Peter to meet Jesus. All priests are asked to notice qualities in young men that would be good in a future priest and to encourage them to listen for God's call to the priesthood.
