Saint Timothy Catholic Church

Holy Orders

In the past few years we have been very blessed to have had several vocations from our parish.  Father Thomas Yehl was ordained to the priesthood on June 9, 2012 and celebrated his first Mass at St. Timothy the following day.  Earlier in the year, Jim Hepler was ordained to the permanent Deaconate.  Father Luke Dundon was ordained to the priesthood on June 11, 2011 and celebrated his first Mass in the parish on the 12th. In the Spring of 2021, parishioner Daniel Rice was Ordained to the Transitional Deaconate

Holy Orders is the sacrament through which 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. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.
