John Cornelius, 64, will be ordained in Wellsville, Allegany County, New York, tomorrow leaving behind his former faith and any hope of a sex life, WGRZ-TV reports
Cornelius, who was previously an Episocal priest for 20 years,found his new role with the support of his three daughters and most importantly his wife, Sharyl...
...Cornelius and his wife became Catholics after he left his former church two years ago, unhappy with its direction.
But he was unable to make the move to priesthood until Pope Benedict XVI issued an order saying married former priests could be ordained a year ago...
...The couple weren't forced to make the decision to opt for celibacy but put themselves forward anyway.
'We don't have to take that particular vow," explained Cornelius, 'We have decided to do that voluntarily'.
