Church should learn from local case

Success - Article sent! close

After reading a June 10 article about a priest stealing $410,000 from his church in Joliet, it was interesting to note that the diocese took immediate action. After an internal audit, the priest was removed from his pastoral role and the audit results were turned over to the DuPage County state's attorney.

He is now facing 21 counts of financial crimes -- and rightly so. Perhaps the Roman Catholic Church at large can take note and act as swiftly against priests who steal something of far greater worth than money -- a child's innocence.
