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 open to young men high school age or oder.  It is an opportunity to have dinner with priests from the Diocese of Joliet.  There will be a presentation on priesthood as well as an opportunity to ask questions
