Msgr.Jim lisante is a disgrace. He acts like a college frat boy than a priest. I have witnessed on several occasions sacrilegious and irreverent behavior. He gave a commencement speech @Molloy College talking about sex. .and referring to God w a reference to a '90s song "what if God was one of us....just a slob like one of us' really Referring to almighty God as a slob!!!! N he is a so called priest????? Monsignor????? And another occasion he married a friend of the family. I witnessed him at the reception kissing women's hands including mine when introduced which I disgustingly pulled away from. He also took his blessed Priest s white collar n passed it around for those in attend ene a prop to stage pictures with. This is a priest ??????? Disgusting individual....poor example of a Catholic let alone a religious.

It would not surprise me at all to find a sex scandal attached to someone so obsessed with others' sexual practices.
Ergo, the hepatitis scare in his parish, wherein he refused to talk publicly about it as well as appeared "green" and ill at that very Mass. What a guy!
