DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport man will continue his 29-year marriage as he is ordained this summer as a priest in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Davenport.

The Quad-City Times reports Chris Young will join the clergy thanks to a 1980 dispensation from Pope John Paul II. The order, called The Pastoral Provision, applies to former clergy of the Episcopal Church.

The 53-year-old Young will become among about 100 people in the U.S. who became Catholic priests through such a process.

Young was a lifelong Episcopalian until eight years ago and had served as priest at Christ Episcopal Church in Moline, Ill.

He will be made a transitional deacon, or one who intends to become a priest, in a Tuesday ceremony.

Young says he'll practice celibacy upon becoming a priest.
