Alton Deanery Andrew Dinner
MPH is hosting the Alton Deanery Andrew Dinner on Monday, September 27th. Andrew Dinners are an opportunity for any young man between the ages of junior in High School to 35 to learn more about the possibility of being a priest. This is not a “signup for seminary” but a simple opportunity to pray, enjoy dinner and conversation. Bishop Paprocki will be here with other priests from the Alton Deanery. If you know any young man who is interested or has the character to make a good priest, please contact Fr. Rob for more details!
