Sacrament of Holy Orders
"And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message..." –Mark 3:14
A Vocation to the Priesthood or Diaconate
“Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles is 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 1356)
