Sacraments of the Holy Orders

(Diaconate and Priesthood)

Can.  1008 By divine institution, the sacrament of orders establishes some among the Christian faithful as sacred ministers through an indelible character which marks them. They are consecrated and designated, each according to his grade, to nourish the people of God, fufilling in the person of Christ the Head the functions of teaching, sanctifying, and governing.

Can.  1009 §1. The orders are the episcopate, the presbyterate, and the diaconate.

§2. They are conferred by the imposition of hands and the consecratory prayer which the liturgical books prescribe for the individual grades.

If you consider that the Lord is calling you  the priesthood or to become a deacon, please contact with the pastor (847-455-1100).
