Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders

“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. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate” (Catechism §1536).

If you are a Catholic man sensing a call to ordained ministry, feel free to contact one of our clergy. Also, be sure and contact the Office of Vocations in the Diocese of Santa Fe at (505)831-8143.
