  2. Characteristics • A diocesan priest is a Roman Catholic priest who commits himself to a certain Location, and is ordained into this service of God's people within a diocese.

  3. Mission of Order • Serving the everyday needs of the people in parishes, also administering the sacraments to the people of that parish is part of what they do too. • A Diocesan priest mostly serves as an extension of the bishop.

  4. Rules of the Order • A diocesan priest commits himself to a celibate life, with respect and obedience to the Bishop. • They cannot be married to anyone, they must only follow God alone.
