Holy Orders

Holy Orders

Some are called to share especially in Christ's priesthood.

In the Old Covenant, even though Israel was a kingdom of priests (Exodus 19:6), the Lord called certain men to a special priestly ministry (Exodus 19:22). In the New Convenant, even though Christians are a kingdom of priests (1 Peter 2:9), Jesus calls certain men to a special priestly ministry (Romans 15:15-16).
Holy Orders

The sacrament of Holy Orders communicates a sacred power which is none other than that of Christ.

By reason of the sacerdotal consecration which he has received, the priest possesses the authority to act in the power and place of the person of Christ himself when presenting to God the prayer of the Church, and above all when offering the Eucharistic sacrifice.

Take a first step in faith and talk about it with one of our parish priests. He will help you along the path of discerning your vocation. And if someone you know has the feeling, help him take that first step!
