The Priest

Stewardship and Authority

 

The priest’s duty is to preach, teach, expound, exhort, and baptize, and administer the sacrament.

 And visit the house of each member, and exhort them to pray vocally and in secret,

and attend to all family duties:

 And he may also ordain other priests, teachers, and deacons;

And he is to take the lead of meetings when there is no elder present,

 And visit the house of each member, exhorting them to pray vocally and in secret, and attend to all family duties.

 In all these duties the priest is to assist the elder if occasion requires.”  See D&C 17:10a, e
