Holy Orders

Man prostrating himself during an ordination

“Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.” –Catechism of the Catholic Church

If you are considering a vocation in the priesthood, we encourage you first to speak to a priest, who will guide you on the process of diligent prayer and discipleship and intense discernment.

To schedule an appointment with a priest, please contact the Parish Office.
