Holy Orders

Ever since Jesus first chose 12 Apostles to help establish His Church, He has chosen men to continue this work in a singularly special way. Through Holy Orders, men are ordained to either bishop, priest or deacon in an unbroken line from the first apostles. They exercise the power of Christ Himself for the good of people and the continuation of the Church.
