Holy Orders

holy ordersThe Sacrament of Holy Orders is the sacred responsibility of governing the Church.
This Sacrament confers the Gifts of the Holy Spirit that permits exercise of this power and responsibility. There are three degrees or orders in this Sacrament.

Bishop: Priests and Deacons report to the Bishop
Bishops are responsible to govern a geographical area. Priests share the priestly duties of Bishop. Deacons share the service ministry of the Bishop.

Bishops, priests and deacons can be secular, meaning ordained to a Diocese OR they can be religious, meaning that they are a member of a Religious Order and follow the rules of that group.

If a man feels that he is called to the Priestly Order, he should make an appointment with one of our wonderful priests.
