A priest ministers to the people of God in the stead of the bishop. This includes:
*Celebrating the Divine Liturgy
*Celebrating baptisms, marriages, funerals and any sacraments of the Church.
Usually, a priest will
Pastor a parish, including pastoral ministry and preaching
*Hear confessions. In some jurisdictions, this is allowable immediately; in others, being a confessor is something a bishop invites a priest to undertake.
