The Sacrament of Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is received by bishops, priests and deacons. The Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the Sacrament of Holy Orders as "the sacrament of apostolic ministry." Ordination empowers bishops, priests and deacons to lead liturgical functions, administer the Sacraments, proclaim the Gospel, preach, and provide other means to holiness such as blessings. Those men who feel called to the Sacrament of Holy Orders are encouraged to contact the rectory at 532-5100.
