Since his wife died five years ago of breast cancer, Victor W. Bartolotta Jr., 39, has been a devoted father to his daughter, Lynn, now 8.
On June 30, he will be ordained as a Catholic priest in the Rochester diocese. He expects the double duties of parent and priest to be difficult: "Some people may have to wait for me. There are times when Lynn will have to wait. I'm in the middle of both worlds."
In his youth, Bartolotta twice enrolled in seminary programs but dropped out both times.
