Diocese of Rochester ordains married man as priest

From New York-

Walking down the aisle Saturday at Sacred Heart Cathedral, dressed all in white, Scott Caton tightly held the hand of his wife, Bonnie.

He watched his only son, Alexander Scott Caton, recite Scriptures from Jeremiah, and his other five children take prominent roles in the Catholic Mass. Forty-five minutes into the ceremony, Caton knelt down in front of the altar as Bishop Matthew Clark laid his hands on Caton's head, signifying the bestowal of the Holy Spirit.

With that gesture and a greeting of peace, the ceremony marked the Diocese of Rochester's first ordination of a married man.
