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: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.

Those who are discerning a call to Holy Orders or Religious life should speak to a member of our Clergy. Additional information may be found through the Archdiocese of Detroit’s Office for Vocations or Sacred Heart Major Seminary.
