Holy Orders is a true sacrament instituted by Christ who ordained the Apostles at the Last Supper. It is the Sacrament by which a man is made a priest or a deacon as it imparts the Holy Spirit to impress an indelible character dedicated to the image of Christ.
The Augustinian Friars, who serve at St. Nicholas of Tolentine, carry forth their patron saint's conviction about the importance of others in helping to make the journey of faith each day. For well over 750 years, the Order of Saint Augustine has offered men and women the experience of a welcoming, encouraging and supportive community in which to live out discipleship to Jesus and to serve the wider Church and society.
