Married former Anglican priest ordained for special ministry

Vaughn Treco, a husband, grandfather of two and former Anglican priest, was ordained to the Catholic diaconate and priesthood in early May with the approval of Pope Francis.

His ordination as a Catholic priest who is married is allowed as an exception to the normal requirement for celibacy.

Treco will serve within the geographic boundaries of the St. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocese as a member of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter as the priest for a community of former Anglicans.
