Priests with Gambling Problems
Priests with Gambling Problems

AIR DATE: October 17, 2011

Last week the pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish in Summerlin pled guilty to mail fraud charges for stealing $650,000 from his parish. The money went in compulsive gambling, according to the priest's lawyer. So what happens to the priest? What kind of treatment is available? And what happens to the parish? How do the new priest and the flock pick up the pieces after a shattering experience like this?
Fr Gerard McGlone, Exec Dir of Consultation, Education and Research at the Saint John Vianney Center, Downingtown, PA

Father Kevin is an amazing homilist and confessor. Depriving us of those gifts will be punishing the laity. There is another person in this - and that is the bishop. This isn't the first financial scandal in our diocese. What is the bishop doing to protect church funds? He may well be taking steps to do so, but we haven't heard about it. We only know what we hear in the media. The other clergy and bishop have been silent.
