Holy Orders

Christ did not leave the Church without a sacrament of leadership and service. Through the various degrees of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, God raises up deacons, priests, and bishops to serve, lead, and govern the Church as a community of faith. As an ongoing sacrament, Holy Orders is God’s gift of assistance and strength for the preaching of the Word, the administration of the sacraments, and the ministry of service leading to the holiness of all.

Priest Benefit Fund (PBF) 2022 Special Collection

The Priest Benefit Fund ensures that the retired and sick priests of the diocese receive an allowance each month to supplement the federal pension and to provide a nominal health insurance plan. We help priests in retirement or on sick leave every month through your generosity.

Please contribute to the Priest Benefit Fund collection on June 12, 2022, or through The Diocese’ CH.org page.
