Holy Orders

This is the sacrament by which, through the authority of the Church, the imposition of a bishop’s hands confers on a man the grace and spiritual power to celebrate the Church’s sacraments.

There are three forms of this sacrament: diaconate (deacon), presbyterate (priest) and episcopate (bishop). One sacrament, celebrated three times with successively higher sacramental effects.

Men interested in becoming a deacon or priest please see Fr. Kevin McManaman for more information and the best course of action to follow God's call.
