HOLY ORDERS

deacon.jpgHoly 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, CCC 1536

Every single one of us has a special role to play in God’s plan for the salvation of all the world. We have all been given gifts and talents that are not intended only for ourselves; God always intended that those gifts be shared. Some have been called to become parents and married persons. They may also serve some role in the public sector of work, using their gifts to benefit others and give glory to God. Others are called upon to become priests or religious brothers and sisters.

Knowing God’s call in your life is a process of discernment. It can be hard to know where we are being called upon to use our gifts. Our diocese offers a website that aids in this discernment, and it can be found at www.vineyardofthelord.com. Contact the Parish Office for more information.
