The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ’s priesthood, which He bestowed upon His Apostles. Holy Orders is the sacrament through which a person dedicates his life to God. The Sacrament of Holy Orders is reserved for those who are entering the ministerial priesthood to serve the faithful. Bishops, Priests, and Deacons receive special gifts to share the sacraments with the faithful.

Our Diocese offers Explorer Days for those seeking to know if God is calling them to the priesthood. If you believe you might have such a calling, make an appointment with our pastor, Father Michael Murphy by calling the Ministry Center at (619) 435-3167.
