Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate (bishops), presbyterate (priests), and diaconate (deacons).

Catechism of the Catholic Church

Holy Orders is best described as the sacrament of apostolic ministry. Through this sacrament the mission that Christ gave to his apostles is continued in the life of the Church.
