Dad of three becomes New York’s first married Catholic priest

Cornelius took a vow of chastity on Saturday and became New York’s first married Catholic priest in a traditional ordination ceremony as his family watched proudly from the pews.

“It’s wonderful. I feel like I’ve been working my whole life to answer God’s call and here I am,” the former Episcopal priest told the New York Daily News.
