Holy Orders is the sacrament by which men are ordained to be of service to the Church as priests, deacons or bishops. While all of the baptized are “ordained’ to a life of service and commitment to Jesus Christ, the Church calls upon some of its members to serve the community in a different way through the sacrament of ministerial priesthood. The ordained have a unique role within the Catholic community. For further information on Holy Orders feel free to contact Father Bill Murtaugh, Pastor or contact the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis.
