The Sacrament of Holy Orders
What is Ordination?
Holy Orders are conferred on a man who has been called by god and approved by the church to be a deacon, a priest or a bishop. Holy Orders give him the graces which are necessary for his sacred duties. For example the duties of a priest are preaching, offering holy mass, hearing confession, and the holy anointing of the sick.
If you are considering a vocation to holy orders please speak to the priest on duty
