Holy Orders as a sacrament was instituted by Jesus at the Last Supper. As He washed the feet of his Disciples (John 13: 1-20), Jesus gave us an example of service to all people. IN addition to the diaconate and priesthood, the Church calls women and men as sisters and brothers in religious life. This vocation, or calling, is a gift from God and a gift to the Church. If you feel called to explore Holy Orders or religious life, please call Father Paul at 708-532-2243.
