Encounter Love Serve Jesus One Another The World

Holy Orders

Holy Orders


The Sacrament of Holy Orders anoints and enables a person in their vocation as Priest, Sister, or Religious. The gift of these vocations fuel our Church and give great examples of literally giving one’s life to Jesus. These bold men and women stand for us and with us, convicted in their beliefs, carrying the light of the world wherever they are called.

Called to the priesthood?
