HOLY ORDERS

Holy Orders is the Sacrament of Apostolic Ministry by which the mission entrusted by Christ to his Apostles continues to be exercised in the Church through the laying on of hands.  This sacrament has three distinct degrees or “orders”: deacon, priest, and bishop.  All three confer a permanent, sacramental character.  (CCC 1536)

Saint Thomas More parish has a strong commitment to foster vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate and religious life.

If you would like to talk with a priest about vocations you can email us to set up an appointment.
