What Is Holy Orders?

“Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1536

Is God calling you?

Any man who feels they’re being called to serve God as a priest or deacon, or any man or woman who feels they’re being called to a consecrated religious life, should seek to respond to their calling.
