Holy Orders

Holy Orders

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."

If you feel that God may be calling you to serve Him and His Church as a priest, permanent deacon, or in the consecrated religious life, please speak with the parish priest or contact the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 412-456-3123, or by e-mail at vocations@diopitt.org.
