While entering into the priesthood is on a decline nationally, one local family is helping reverse that trend in Milwaukee. Three brothers will be ordained priests after Saturday, June 4th -- as the final Strand brother is set to be ordained.continue at Fox6 (St. Joan of Arc Chapel invoked)
FOX6 News sat down with the brothers to talk about how rare this is -- three priests in one family.
"There's a combination of a very, very deep peace with a lot of excitement," said Vincent Strand.
In less than 24 hours, Vincent Strand will be an ordained priest. Following in not one, but two of his brother's footsteps.
"People are always quite surprised naturally. This is very rare to have three brothers who are all ordained priests," said Father Jacob Strand.

The Strands are lovely. I went to college with their sister, and the whole crew is just wonderful! Pray for them! :) https://t.co/niagkVZzxq— Maggie Melchior (@MaggieMelchior) June 4, 2016
So does anyone know how Fr. Luke Strand is doing? Josh posted a couple years back that he was going through treatments for colon cancer.
