Identical Twins Ordained As Catholic Priests

That's what Pennsylvania's Wilkes Barre Times-Leader has reported today:

ERIE — James and Joseph Campbell are identical twins and on Friday night, their uncannily similar lives are scheduled to merge again as both will be ordained as Roman Catholic priests at St. Peter Cathedral.

The 26-year-old Erie brothers said they always wanted to be priests, they used to play at saying Mass at home, using communion wafers they made from bread. They voluntarily went to 6:30 a.m. Mass each day growing up.

“It wasn’t an obligation for us, but rather something we saw as cool,” Joseph Campbell said.


They come from a typical BIG Catholic family. I wish them the best.
