Deacon Bill told another parishioner that they did not have the money to pay for the demolition and they were waiting for the Diocese to deal with the missing funds.

You all spent months insisting that there was nothing wrong, and that Father LaFache's resignation was purely a matter of poor health. You attacked those who wanted the truth revealed, corruption rooted out, and justice done wherever it was necessary. And now look---a little bit of it has surfaced, and you look like fools at best, liars at worst.

And who believes the District Attorney is doing anything but assisting in a whitewash at this point?

UTICA —

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse is handling an internal matter concerning the Rev. Anthony LaFache before he retired as pastor of the St. Anthony and St. Agnes Church in Utica last year, officials said Thursday.

Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara confirmed that the diocese contacted him earlier this month to state that they were going to internally handle their concerns involving 74-year-old LaFache, instead of referring the matter for criminal prosecution.

While McNamara would not discuss the allegations against LaFache, he did say that he was convinced the diocese was sufficiently handling the issue.

“They’re not asking the DA’s Office to investigate, but they did indicate that they would fully cooperate if I felt differently,” McNamara said.“But I’m satisfied that justice is being served internally and there are no external victims of his actions that would warrant us proceeding to prosecute, and the fact that the church is choosing to handle this internally is fine with me.”

A representative of the diocese could not immediately comment about the internal investigation Thursday.

The diocese first alerted McNamara last year that they were investigating LaFache around the time he announced his resignation and retirement as pastor in early September. The diocese at the time said it would then inform McNamara of the outcome of their investigation.

Although LaFache did step down from St. Anthony and St. Agnes, Danielle Cummings, director of communications at the diocese, said LaFache still had the ability to practice priestly duties but was not currently serving as a pastor anywhere.

A new pastor, the Rev. Mark Kaminski, former director of Christ the King Retreat House in Syracuse, was appointed in November to replace LaFache as pastor of the East Utica church.

This really doesn't PROVE a thing..It is negligence on the bookeepers part. Next they will be saying that the bookkeeper was in cahoots with fr. lafache.
