The ordained ministry occurs in three degrees or orders: bishop, priest, and deacon. These ministries are essential for the life of the Church. Bishops receive the fullness of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. They are the chief teachers, sanctifiers, and shepherds in their dioceses. By ordination, priests are united with the bishops in {priestly} dignity and at the same time depend on them in the exercise of their pastoral functions; they are called to be the bishops' prudent co-workers. Deacons receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but not the ministerial priesthood.
