Holy Orders

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us:
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.

For more information, please call Father Rousseau, Deacon Bill Lovelace, or the Archdiocesan Office of Vocations at 860.761.7456.
