Holy Orders is the sacrament that constitutes and seals the individual (whether priest, deacon, or bishop), by the grace of the Holy Spirit, to serve the People of God, and to fulfill the pastoral ministry of Jesus Christ. The ordained minister is sent to bless, to preach the Gospel of Christ, and to administer the other Sacraments under the direction of the Bishop, and so fulfill the charism of unselfish service to others in union with Christ.

ARE YOU BEING CALLED TO HOLY ORDERS?
Is God’s calling you to become a priest, sister, brother or deacon? Join us for an informal time to talk, ask questions & pray. We meet every 4th Monday of each month at St. Mary Magdalen Church. St. Mary Magdalen Parish has an Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at their Chapel from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm and then Dn. Modugno and Fr. Neiman meet at 7:30 pm with anyone interested in talking about a vocation to the religious life or diaconate.
