Holy Orders

 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Holy Orders enables the Church to have the service of bishops, priests and deacons.   This sacrament is conferred by the Bishop laying hands upon a candidate for Orders.  Perhaps you would consider serving as a priest or a deacon in the Church?   There is a considerable period of education and discernment.  For more information about vocation to the diaconate or priesthood, follow links of the vocations’ section.
