Catholic Diocese of Buffalo Bishop Richard Malone is set to ordain the region's first married Roman Catholic priest this coming weekend. 

Malone Saturday will ordain John Cornelius, a former Episcopal priest who converted to Catholicism with his wife two years ago.

Cornelius is being accepted into the clergy under a stipulation by Pope Benedict last year that welcomes Episcopalians and Anglicans into the Catholic Church. 

After being ordained, Cornelius will lead a small group of former Anglicans who worship at a Catholic church in Henrietta.
