The Sacrament of Holy Orders
There are three degrees, or orders of this ministry in the Catholic Church:
- The episcopate, the order of bishops
- The presbyterate, the order of priests
- The diaconate, the order of deacons
Ordained ministers help the community be in touch with God and live out the mission of Jesus Christ in the world. Representing Jesus, they serve as spiritual guides to the Kingdom of God. At St. Albert, you can support vocations to the priesthood by participating in our Traveling Chalice program. For more information about supporting vocations to the priesthood and religious life, please contact Angie Stachnik at 326-3769.
