St. Paul


Does anyone know if St. Paul was ordained or not? He is the patron saint of the laity and it doesn’t mention anything about him being ordained in any of the biographies I have read about him… :confused:


It appears that St. Paul was confirmed by Ananias at Damascus in Acts 9:17 and ordained at Antioch in Acts 13:1-3. Be that as it may, by Acts 19:6 St. Paul was confirming converts at Ephesus.
