The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ’s priesthood, which He bestowed upon His Apostles. In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, a man is incorporated into the priesthood of Christ, at one of three levels: the episcopate, the priesthood, or the diaconate.
For anyone interested in preparing for the Sacrament of Holy Orders, we recommend you schedule an appoint to meet with one of our priests at St. Isaac’s. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment.
