The Cologne archdiocese said 61-year-old Harm Klueting is to be ordained as a Catholic priest Tuesday, Fox News reports.
Pope Benedict gave him a special permission to remain married to his wife Edeltraut Klueting, who became a Catholic Carmelite nun in 2004. The couple has two grown children.
“It doesn’t happen every day,” noted Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi.
