The sacrament of Holy Orders is conferred in all three degrees – bishops, priests and deacons – by a bishop. This is done by the laying on of hands on the man being ordained, followed by a solemn prayer of consecration asking God to grant the ordained the graces of the Holy Spirit required for his ministry.
