    In Mormonism, an ordinance is a religious ritual of special significance, often involving the formation of a covenant with God. Ordinances are performed by the authority of the priesthood and in the name of Jesus Christ. The term has a meaning roughly similar to that of the term "sacrament" in other Christian denominations. There are numerous Latter Day Saint ordinances, many of which are also practiced by other Christian denominations. For example, Mormons practice Baptism, Confirmation and Sacrament. Some ordinances that are unique to Mormonism are usually associated with and performed in LDS temples. These ordinances include the Endowment and sealings.
