There are three degrees: bishop, priest and deacon. (CCC 1533-1600) • The Sacrament of Holy Orders confers an indelible spiritual mark like Baptism and Confirmation. • Bishops are successors of the Apostles; they lead the Church; they are to teach the Faith and administer the Sacraments; they ordain priests and deacons to help them. • Deacons are ordained for tasks of service; they are never able to administer the Sacraments of Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, or Holy Order. (CCC 1596) Mathew 4:18-22 Call of the Apostles Luke 22:14-20 The Last Supper Genesis 14:18-20;Heb. 7:1-10 Melchizedek Mathew 28:16-20 Mission Acts 6:1-6 Deacons 1. August 6th, 2009 Transfiguration of our Lord “The whole Church is a priestly people. Through Baptism all the faithful share in the priesthood of Christ. This participation is called the ‘common priesthood of the faithful’” (CCC 1591).

As successors of the Apostles and members of the college, the bishops share in the apostolic responsibility and mission of the whole Church under the authority of the Pope, the successor of St. Peter. (CCC 1594) 4. The Pope and the bishops who are in communion with him make up the Magisterium. The Magisterium is the living, teaching office of the Church, whose task it is to give as authentic interpretation of the word of God, whether in its written form of Sacred Scripture, or in the form of Sacred Tradition, the teachings of the Church. The Magisterium ensures the Church’s fidelity to the teaching of the Apostles in matters of faith and morals. (CCC 85, 890, 2033, 888, 892) B. The Sacrament of Matrimony is a covenant between one man and one woman for a lifetime, to show their love for one another, to have children, and to be a witness of the union of Christ and the Church. Just as we are made in the image and likeness of God, so the family is an image and likeness of the family of God, the Church.
