Holy Orders

"Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the Church entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Chruch until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate." (CCC # 1536) Men interested in help to discern a call to be a priest or deacon can contact our Administrator, Fr. Michael Taylor at 703.378.1037.

Other Religious vocations, though not graced with a sacrament, are also vital to the life of the Church. The call to be a Religious Sister, Brother, or Priest is a gift to be cherished and explored. There are many who are called to lay apostolates in the Church in a temporary commitment as well. For information contact Fr. Michael Taylor at 703.378.1037.
