Holy Orders

Through this Sacrament, the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time.  Deacons, priests, and bishops are essential to the Church as they continue the ministry begun by the apostles.  The priest’s special calling is first and foremost to preach the Good News of God’s love for humanity.  The deacons have a special place in the pastoral work of the Church, preaching, ministering at baptisms and weddings.  Bishops are chosen and ordained to supervise and lead priests and deacons, to unify, bless and teach the people and act as a sign of Christ in the local church and community.  Young men interested in serving as a priest are encouraged to contact Fr. Casey.
