Holy Orders

rafal-ord19 Fr. Rafal Wasilewski, C.R on his ordination day. Fr. Rafal was a parishioner of St. Hyacinth parish and was ordained by Bishop Robert Kurtz, C.R. on December 1 2012. Fr. Rafal now serves as the pastor of Holy Trinity Parish in Westmont, Illinois.

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is a very special and unique sacrament in which the church bestows upon a man the gift of ordination. There are three types of ordination, diaconate, priesthood and bishop. Men wishing to discern whether they are being called to the ordained ministry are asked to contact one of the priests at the parish.
