Sacrament of Holy Orders
Holy Orders is the sacrament by which bishops, priests and deacons are ordained and receive the power and grace to perform their sacred duties. The sacred rite by which orders are conferred is called ordination. The apostles were ordained by Jesus at the Last Supper so that others could share in his priesthood.

Holy Orders, which was instituted by Christ himself, is administered by the laying on of hands by the Bishop, through which the priest is given the power to serve the Church through his preaching, teaching and celebration of the Sacraments.

If you love the Church and want to proclaim the Gospel through the Sacramental life of the Church, you may have a call to the Priesthood or Diaconate! please Contact Our Lady of Fatima Parish Office and set up a meeting. We would love to hear from you!
