Deacon, Teacher, Priest!

Along with turning 16 last week, Caleb had the opportunity to be interviewed by our new Bishop and was found worthy to be ordained to the office of Priest in the Aaronic Priesthood.  He was sustained by the congregation and was ordained by his dad on Sunday.  Here is some information from the church website about the duties and responsibilities of a Priest.

The Duties of the Priest
Worthy brethren may be ordained priests when they are at least 16 years old. The specific duties of a priest are found in the Doctrine and Covenants, Section 20:46-48.

46 The priest’s duty is to preach, teach, expound, exhort, and baptize, and administer the sacrament,
47 And visit the house of each member, and exhort them to pray vocally and in secret and attend to all family duties.
48 And he may also ordain other priests, teachers, and deacons.

We are proud of Caleb for being worthy to advance in his priesthood duties.  He will have the opportunity next week to bless the sacrament during sacrament meeting.  What a sacred honor!
