Former Gov. James E. McGreevey has started the process to become a priest in his newly adopted Episcopal faith and has been accepted into a three-year seminary program starting this fall.
McGreevey, who often described himself as a devout Catholic while in public office, was officially received into the Episcopal religion on Sunday, at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Manhattan.
He also has been accepted into the Master of Divinity program at Manhattan’s renowned General Theological Seminary, seminary spokesman Bruce Parker said in a statement this afternoon.

on Oprah[the confessional self-help and possitive affirmation venuetm], we learn that he really is doing all things one does to become an Episcopalian priest.
I gotta tell ya. Living in Jersey is farookin’ adventure.
