Priestly Ordination

The Ordination to the Diaconate and the Priesthood comes at the end of a long journey of prayer, study and discernment. The men whom the Lord invites to serve Him in the Sacred Priesthood are ordained by the laying on of hands and a gift of the Holy Spirit to offer the Sacrifice of Christ. A Priestly Ordination is a gift to the Church of a man consecrated for service, to proclaim the Gospel and lead the people of God in prayer and worship, most especially in the Holy Mass. Could God be calling you? If you feel He may be, please contact Father James who would be delighted to hear from you.
“The world looks to the Priests, because it looks to Jesus! No one can see Christ, but everyone sees the Priest, and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord. Immense is the greatness of the Lord! Immense is the dignity of the Priest!”

Pope Saint John Paul II, Rome, October 1979.
