“For this reason, I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands.”

2 Timothy 1:16

Holy Orders is a sacrament instituted by Christ who ordained the Apostles at the Last Supper. In the Sacrament of the Holy Orders, a man is ordained as bishop, priest, or deacon. It is a sacrament administered by the laying on of hands by the bishop, through which the bishop, priest, or deacon is given the power to serve the Church through his preaching, teaching, and celebration of the Sacraments.
