Sacrament of Holy Orders
The Sacrament of Holy Orders is a three-part sacrament through which men enter ordained service to the Catholic Church as deacons, priests and bishops.
It is through Holy Orders that “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.” (CCC 1536)
Men who feel that they may be called by God to become priests should talk with the pastor. They may also contact the Director of Vocations at the Archdiocese of Denver, 303-282-3429. Men who feel that they are being called to the Diaconate may contact the Office of the Diaconate at the same number at the Archdiocese.
If you have been called to the priesthood or diaconate, contact the Vocations Director of the Archdiocese of Denver.
