Married Priests in the Roman Catholic Church

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester, NY is getting a new priest — a married one: Scott Caton. That's pretty unusual. If this becomes a major trend in the Church, it could lead to significant shift in the health of the organization. The Catholic Church in CNY is seen as a dying organization because of it's recent need to close and restructure parishes and it's lack of priests. Here in CNY where the average age of a priest is 70+ and the need for new priests is at a crisis level, if there were an influx of priests who were married and of the caliber of Scott Caton there would be genuine excitement — dare I say revival.

Dr. Scott Caton Caton is Professor of History at Roberts Wesleyan College, as well as Professor of History and Culture at Northeastern Seminary. And, from the times I have interacted with him, he is a delightful soul.
