St. Mary's Cathedral - Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders

The whole Church is a priestly people. Through Baptism all the faithful share in the priesthood of Christ. This participation is called the “common priesthood of the faithful.” Based on this common priesthood and ordered to its service, there exists another participation in the mission of Christ: the ministry conferred by the sacrament of Holy Orders, where the task is to serve in the name and in the person of Christ the Head in the midst of the community.

Is God Calling You?

The Cathedral clergy and pastoral staff are available to speak with you. If you are discerning a call to a life of service to the Church, please feel free to contact one of the Cathedral clergy by phone or the Archdiocesan vocations director.
