Holy Orders

“Go, therefore, and made disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19

Holy Orders are given to make a man a deacon, priest, or bishop. In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the person being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.

Persons called to this vocation are involved in some of the most important moments of people's lives: marriages, funerals, baptisms, reconciliation, counseling, etc. It is a life full of surprises and joys.

Any gentleman interested in exploring the question of vocation to the priesthood or the permanent diaconate should contact one of the parish priests or deacons at the Parish office, at 744-8566. We will also be happy to direct persons interested in living their lives as Religious Sisters or Brothers.
