Holy Orders

The sacrament of Holy Orders is the activity by which a man commits his life to serve the Church.  Holy Orders is a three-fold sacrament in that it includes ordination to the diaconate, the priesthood and to the office of Bishop.

The deacon is ordained for service and can perform marriages, baptisms, assist at the altar during Mass and performs other rituals in the Church.

When a man is ordained to the priesthood he is given the responsibility and the power to offer Mass (the Eucharist), forgive sins, administer the other sacraments and care for the spiritual lives of the people he serves.

When a Bishop is ordained he accepts the responsibility to administer his diocese and has the personal jurisdiction as a successor of the apostles over the people in his diocese.

Whenever a man feels called to the priesthood, it is appropriate for him to contact the Pastor.  This guidance should prove beneficial to him.

Adult men (single or married) should likewise contact the pastor for information on becoming a permanent deacon.

For more information please visit the Diocese of Beaumont Office of Vocations website, or by contacting the Office of Vocations at (409) 924-4360.
