Holy Orders

Are you being called to serve?  Many men receive a calling from God to become priests or deacons.  Please prayerfully consider God’s call to lead His people. The priesthood needs men like you.

Those who receive the sacrament of Holy Orders — as a deacon, priest or bishop — are consecrated in Christ’s name “to feed the Church by the word and grace of God.”

Holy Orders: Ordained to Serve, Gather, Transform and Send  (Also available en Español) – This short, two-page handout describes how ordained ministers play an important role in helping Christians to imitate Christ’s mission of love and justice, through gathering the community, modeling Christ’s love for the poor, presiding at Eucharist, and evangelizing social realities.
