Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is reserved for those who are entering the ministerial priesthood to serve the faithful. That includes Bishops, Priests, and Deacons. They receive special gifts to share the sacraments with the faithful. Holy Orders is a sacrament through which a person dedicates his life to God.

The Diocese of Nashville offers Evening of Discernment for those asking the question if priesthood is the place where they are being called. If you feel you have such a calling, make an appointment with your priest. For a priest at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, call (615) 327-2330.
