They are ordained ministers who have the authority to perform sacraments such as the Eucharist. The Pope is the highest-ranking official in the Catholic Church but does not lead every mass. The Bishop is a higher-ranking clergy member who oversees multiple churches but does not necessarily lead every mass either. The laity refers to the general body of church members and does not have the authority to lead the mass.
