Through the sacrament of Holy Orders, the mission entrusted by Christ to His apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time. This is the sacrament of apostolic ministry, to build up and sanctify the Church.
Holy Family Parish is grateful for the services of those who have been ordained to the Order of the Priesthood. By ancient tradition the sacrament of Holy Orders can only be conferred by a bishop.
The work of ordained ministry is vital for the Christian community, and men who feel themselves called towards this ministry should carefully consider it in prayer and with the help of spiritual directors. For more information contact the parish or talk to the Diocese of Green Bay about the program for vocations.
