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.

Feel Called?

If you feel called to ordained ministry in God’s Church, or would like to learn more about the vocation to the priesthood, please contact Father Scott Nolan or Father Stephen Durkee. In discernment of a vocation to the permanent diaconate, contact Father Jerry Roersma.

In Holy Orders, God ordains a man to a ministry of service in the Church.  Currently in the Diocese of Grand Rapids, applications are being accepted for formation in both the permanent diaconate (deacons) and the presbyterate (priests).
