Sacraments are God’s interactions with his holy people. A sense of the holy is most always apparent in the celebration of these brushes with the divine. The celebrations are certainly sentient, physical and experiential. If we have ever questioned whether God cares for his Elect, it is in Sacrament that we receive the answer. The Father, who created and cares for us, gave us his Son as a free gift and he knew that Salvation would come to us. In the further caring of the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit is given us and is active in all of the Sacraments of the Church. It is in the action of our God that the holy work is efficacious, and we experience the richness of his love and caring. We are strengthened in order to live a moral life, as Scripture dictates.

Holy Orders
If one feels called to Priesthood, please call the pastor and discuss it with him. The priestly life is a wonderful testament to the Holy Spirits work in a man’s life. The priesthood is open only to men who are single, or single again. Prayerful discernment is called for in deciding to pursue Priesthood. The Bishop of the Diocese is the proper presider for the Sacrament. The Ordinations to the Deaconate and Priesthood are scheduled in his office.
