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.


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people.
— Luke 4: 18-19

 

What are holy orders?

It includes three degrees: episcopate (bishop), presbyterate (priest), and diaconate (deacon). Through Holy Orders, the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time. A man receiving the Sacrament of Holy Orders is ordained a bishop, priest, or deacon.
