Holy Orders

‘Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: bishops, priest and deacons (CCC 1536).’

 If you feel called to the Priesthood, Diaconate or Religious Life please contact us via the Parish.

Let us pray for vocations to the Priesthood, Diaconate and the Religious Life….


Heavenly Father, in your plan for our salvation you provide shepherds for your people.

Look with favour upon our homes and communities that through the Holy Spirit,

men and women may be inspired with the grace of a vocation to the priesthood, 

diaconate and religious life, to care for your flock, minister at your altars 

and be ardent but gentle servants of the Gospel.

Lord, hear us......Lord, graciously hear us.
