Holy Orders

The tasks of our clergy are quite manifold. At the Mother House and in the affiliate missionary stations they provide pastoral care for the faithful with the holy Sacraments, conversations and home visits. The Sacraments are food of the soul and GOD’s word is drink.

Prayer

Before the Most Blessed Sacrament, each of our clergy, be he a bis­hop, priest or deacon, gains the necessary strength for his priestly ministry – here the salvation of souls is asked and wrestled for in prayer. Apart from the daily praying of the Rosary, twice-weekly devotions are held and the solemn Eucharistic Blessing is imparted once a month.

John 15,16: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. And so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”

Work

Apart from the priestly tasks and the cleaning of the church and chapel, our clergy are not afraid of some hard manual work, are busy doing translation work or are lending an occasional helping hand to the sisters doing housework. Maintenance and care of the premises as well as renovations in the house are done by ourselves and not seldom praised by specialists.

Administrations of Sacraments

The faithful are provided with the seven holy Sacraments. If someone is ill or no longer able to come to the Sacraments due to old age, he will be visited weekly and strengthened with the Sacraments. When a priest is called to a dying person, he will set off without delay at any time of the day or night in order to administer Holy Unction to him and to stand by his side on his way to eternity.
