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, presbyterate, and diaconate.

For information on the Sacrament of Holy Orders, visit the Vatican’s website on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
