Operation Andrew Dinner
Why is it called Operation Andrew Dinner?
In the Eastern Church, St. Andrew is known as Protokletos ("First Called") as John the Baptist invited him to follow Jesus. After doing so, Andrew then brought his brother Simon Peter to the Lord. (John 1:38-41) Like Andrew, the Lord is asking priests to bring others to Him so that they may discover their vocation as well.
The Operation Andrew Dinner is an informal evening where young men, high school age or older, will have the chance to have dinner with Bishop Conlon and Fr. Burke Masters, Vocation Director for the Diocese of Joliet, and other priests of the Joliet Diocese. At this dinner participants will hear a vocation story, watch a short video on vocations, ask Bishop Conlon and the priests questions and have the chance to meet other young men interested in knowing more about the priesthood.
