A news release on the University of Dallas website announced a special event for men discerning the priesthood held by the Diocese of Dallas.
The St. Andrew Dinner will take place on Jan. 5, 2014, at nearby Holy Trinity Seminary. The event will feature talks about the journey to the priesthood by Dallas Bishop Kevin Farrell and diocesan priests and seminarians.
Here's more from the university:
“My advice to any young man discerning a vocation to the priesthood is daily prayer, first and foremost,” said Fr. John Szatkowski, director of vocations for the Dallas Diocese.
UD men who are discerning a vocation to the diocesan priesthood will have a chance to learn more about that vocation at the St. Andrew Dinner on Jan. 5.
“Oftentimes, young men are afraid to speak with anyone about how they’re considering a vocation to priesthood. Don’t be afraid – enter into prayer and utilize any of the vast amount of discernment resources that are available!” said Szatkowski.
University of Dallas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
