Holy Orders

This is a Sacrament for the ordination of our clergy. Those who receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders — as a deacon, priest or bishop — are consecrated in Christ’s name “to feed the Church by the word and grace of God.”

Diocese of New Ulm’s Prayer for Vocations 

Lord, God, we praise and bless your holy name. We ask that you give the Church of New Ulm holy priests, dedicated women and men religious, selfless deacons and zealous missionaries. Inspire in the hearts of our youth a spirit of generosity to commit their lives to the message and ministry of Jesus, your son. We ask all this through Him who lives and reigns as Our Lord, forever and ever. Amen. Mary, mother of the Church, pray for us.

Prayer used with permission from Archbishop John C. Nienstedt, third bishop of the Diocese of New Ulm.
