Holy Orders / Vocations


The Sacrament of Holy Orders is known as a “Sacrament of Service to the Community.” It is directed primarily to service to the larger Faith Community. By Baptism, all the members of the Church share in the priesthood of Christ. The Sacrament of Holy Orders, which includes diaconate, priesthood and episcopacy establishes individuals who serve the community of all Christ’s faithful by teaching, worship, and pastoral governance.
