The sacrament of Holy Orders is conferred on those who are called to be leaders in the Catholic Faith Community.
Within this sacrament there are three levels of service - bishops, priests and deacons.
Their ministry is modelled on the person of Jesus Christ, who was:
- Priest - they lead the Community in prayer and celebration of the Sacraments
- Prophet - they hand on authentic teaching to the Community
- Servant-king - their time and energy are at the service of the Community.
