"... This isn't the first time the diocese has accused a local rector of financial misconduct
In July 2007, an Episcopal court cleared the Rev. David G. Bollinger of all charges related to diocesan allegations while he was rector of St. Paul's in Owego.
Bollinger, who is retired, claimed the investigation was retaliation for telling the diocese about a former rector's sexual misconduct with a teenager in the 1970s.
After a five-month investigation, the former rector, Ralph E. Johnson, then 79, voluntarily renounced his credentials in May 2006, without admitting guilt.
The Church of the Good Shepherd withdrew from the Episcopal church in November 2007 in a dispute over the ordination of a homosexual as bishop and differences in scriptural interpretation.
The congregation, which aligned itself with the Anglican Church of Kenya, vacated a building on Conklin Avenue and has settled into the former St. Andrew Catholic Church, also on Conklin Avenue."
