The Sacrament of
Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders, also called the Sacrament of Ordination, is for men to become priests.

This sacrament was given to us by Jesus at the Last Supper. The first men who received the power of priesthood were the apostles. The apostles passed on that gift to us.

A man that wants to be a priest has to go to school for many years.  After that is done, he has a ceremony where he is ordained and he becomes a priest.

A priest is given special powers through ordination.  He then can give us all the sacraments.  Priests are called in a special way to help us and to preach the Word of God.
