Father Scott Caton, a married father of six who began pursuing the priesthood in 2000 and received Vatican permission in 2010 to take final steps toward ordination, came to the end of a long journey June 11 when he was ordained a priest by Bishop Matthew H. Clark. Family and friends from both Catholic and Protestant faith communities filled most of Sacred Heart Cathedral for a joyous celebration. “I don’t think I’ve ever felt better,” Father Caton exclaimed after the Mass.
