Sacraments: Holy Orders
The Sacrament of Holy Orders
Men who feel that God may be calling them to the priesthood or to the diaconate often find this sense of "calling" something that grows or will not go away. Sometimes one or more others will ask, "Have you ever considered becoming a priest? or deacon?" If any of these "intuitions" fit your experience - or perhaps right now you are just curious - contact the Pastor at 715-356-6284, ext 151 to explore these feelings. Or talk with someone you trust.
While not a Sacrament, women and men may also feel God's call in the form of vowed life, as a religious sister or brother. These men and women, too, feel that call which sometimes arises very clearly while other times is vague or mysterious. Careful discernment with others is always a necessary step in these matters. Again, contact the Pastor at 715-356-6284, ext 151 to explore these feelings. Or talk with someone you trust.
