Holy Orders and Consecrated Life

“The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”
-Luke 10:2


All Christians are called to discern their vocation in life.  Most may be called to marriage, some to single life, yet others to be a religious sister, religious brother, deacon, or priest. The first step in any vocation is fervent prayer. The next step is to contact others for more information:

Holy 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. (CCC 1536)
