<quoted text> I have met him many times over many years. My impression was that he thought he was Christ Himself -- had an ego bigger than the Hotel Utica. His sermons revolved around himself and his family. I could never get over the impression that he was putting on a show. And I have heard from people who should know -- that it wasn't poor bookkeeping, but a more serious problem. And I want to know who arranged for him to just slip away, rather than having to face the music like Val Krul had to. But the diocese is covering for him, and I don't know why. If you love him, then love is truly blind. May God have mercy on him, and may justice be done for the sake of those whose money was lost. And with that, I'll stop posting, because it falls on deaf ears.
Amen to that. We are all sinners and deserve the wrath of God. But, thankfully we also have His mercy.

The OD reported that the case was turned over to the DA and he threw it back to the Diocese.When will the church get reimbursed for the missing funds?

I read the most recent post but I feel this post is not old if the money was not repaid to the church.Most parishioners I talked to want the missing money repaid and not swept under the rug.

I don't know who you are talking to, but EVERYONE in our parish that I've talked to DO NOT believe that any money was taken by father Anthony....therefore, it would seem that there is nothing to repay!!!

Instead of all these remarks why isnt the new pastor or the Bishop replacing anyone who had any kind of authority during Fr. LaFache's regime replaced. For example the trustees and comittee heads who ran the parish for Fr. LaFache?

Someone needs to investigate the Bishop. There's so much about this story that "antiquated bookkeeping" doesn't explain.

LaFache as well as Deacon Bill,trustees are all to blame.I would demand restitution for all.Stop giving to the Hope Appeal.Demand the Bishop come to st anthonys and tell us why all this money is missing and why the DA refuses to be involved.

WE demand to know what YOU did with the money since you are bent on blaming others??? ONCE AGAIN, you moron get it through your thick skull, no money was actually missing..Someone did not know how to keep the books....end of story..Now, go get a real life.
