Holy Orders, sometimes called ordination, refers to the sacrament of becoming an ordained, or religious, clergymen in our Church. Holy Orders can be given to deacons (transitional or permanent), priests, or bishops. In our Diocese, as in all dioceses within the United States, the process of study and discernment for a religious vocation is guided by the Diocese directly. Generally, a significant time of preparation and study is required for any ordained ministry.
