Holy Orders

  • In Holy Orders men are ordained as priests, deacons, or bishops. Priests serve as spiritual leaders of their communities, and deacons serve to remind us of our baptismal call to help others. Bishops carry on the teachings of the apostles. The signs of this sacrament are the laying on of hands and anointing with oil by the bishop.

    The Green Bay Diocese is fervently praying for more vocations to the priesthood. To explore this sacrament, click on the button below for the Diocesan Vocations Office.
