Holy Orders

 

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."

Please see more information about vocations to the priesthood and diaconate in our section on Vocations.

Holy Orders: Ordained to Serve, Gather, Transform and Send  (Also available en Espanol) - 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.
