Priest Job Description

A priest is a person in religious orders who serves and leads religious congregations.

The word comes from the early Christian term for “universal bishop,” or bishop in religious orders.

A priest is a religious or ordained minister who professes faith in and follows the teachings of a deity and performs religious rituals such as baptisms, marriages, or funerals.

Many faiths distinguish between priests and bishops, who oversee local churches.

The term “priest” is sometimes used to refer to a rabbi.
