Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders

You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! My very self you know: My bones are not hidden from you, When I was being made in secret, fashioned in the depths of the earth.Your eyes saw me unformed;in your book all are written down;my days were shaped, before one came to be. (Psalm 139) 

God calls all of us to vocations, to follow Him, whether they be in certain roles or in certain occupations.  Have you discerned your vocation?  Take a look at this video to learn how God called these Church haters to be Church servants.

Right now in the Diocese of Rochester, there is a serious priest shortage.  We are invited by the Mothers of Lu and others in our diocese to pray for men and women to serve God and us as priests, deacons and professed religious.  Click on the links to learn about becoming a priest,  deacon or man or woman consecrated to religious life.
