Is God Calling You to Serve?

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ’s priesthood which He bestowed upon His Apostles.   The Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the Sacrament of Holy Orders as “the sacrament of apostolic ministry.”

“Ordination” comes from the Latin word “ordinatio,” which means to incorporate someone into an order.  In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.”
