What occurs during the ordination of a Catholic Bishop?

Is there a special communion? What kind of service is held, and is it public?


Answer by  Jack56 (408)

The ordination, primarily consists of solemn covenants, the Lord's Supper Celebration, that includes receiving communion, the laying on of hands, specific prayer to invoke the Holy Spirit, the Ordination Prayer and the formal presentation of the Ordination Certificate. It is a public service held at a church, where the local congregation and senior church officials, are in attendance.

This ordination is a public service. There are more special rituals such as anointing and seating of the bishop. The communion is special because both body and blood is received.
