Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the Sacrament by which men become priests and are given a sacred power to act in the person of Christ in order confect Christ’s Body/Blood and offer it up to the Father at the Mass for the remission of sins; to forgive sins through the Sacrament of Penance; to solemnly baptize; to preside during the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony; to offer Anointing of the Sick to the dying; to preach; and to otherwise teach, govern, and sanctify their parish family.
