Holy Orders

It is through Holy Orders that “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.” (CCC 1536)

The call to religious life is the most radical way to serve in Christ’s army, but requires serious discernment. Are you willing to die so that other’s may live? That may sound extreme, but are you willing to dedicate your life to help others in this earthly journey to be ready for our greatest journey: an eternity with Christ?

Here are some great videos for both men and women on vocations in the Church.

Religious Life

Men and women who feel that they may be called by God to the religious life should talk with the pastor. You may also contact the Director of Vocations at the Archdiocese of Denver, 303.282.3429.


Through the reception of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, the Deacon is the icon of Christ the Servant, in service to the Church through his Bishop.

Men who feel that they are being called to the Diaconate may visit the Office of the Diaconate at their website, or call them at 303.282.3429.
