Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the sacrament through which 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. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.  (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1536)

If you are interested in learning more about the priesthood,  permanent deaconate or the religious life, please contact Joe Freedy at the Vocations Office for the Diocese of Pittsburgh at (412) 456-3000 x3612 or their website!

You can also set an appointment to speak with one of our Priests or Deacons about this exciting life of service to the people of God!
