Sacrament - Holy Orders

Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the sacrament by which bishops, priests and deacons are ordained and receive the power and grace to perform their sacred duties.

Have you every thought about being a priest?

Priests always seem to be there when we come to pray with the community on Sundays and holydays. They are with us at those significant moments in our lives, e.g. baptism, marriage, sickness, death. It is hard to imagine Catholic without priests.

Priests come from families and parish communities to serve the church. We know that God has called individuals to priesthood in the past and trust that God will continue to call individuals in the present. If you have ever thought that God is calling you, please contact Fr. Don to talk about it - 262-786-7330.

Have you ever felt the call to become a Permanent Deacon?

Permanent Deacons are ordained ministers of the Church. Liturgically, deacons preside at funerals, weddings, and baptisms as well as assisting at Mass by proclaiming the Gospel and at times preaching.  Deacons are not substitutes for priests and not priest “wanna be’s.” Deacons are a unique ordained order that reflect the image of “Christ the Servant.” The primary call of the deacon is to minister to those not in the pew and on the fringes of community. The ministry of the deacon takes place within the context of his family (if married) and his secular job.

For more information please contact Deacon Mike (262-782- 6783) or visit the archdiocese website
