Ok whats the scoop they claim he has been out taking car of his sister that needs around the clock care. However he was seen out laughing and joking for his 75th birthday and now we get a letter stating he is retiring. He can not even come to the church and make this announcement after all that money we gave something is very fishy here i think i smell a scandal

You're over analyzing the situation. Even though he cares for someone in need, lets hope the man can get away for awhile for personal reasons. Everyone eventually reaches retirement so that's no big surprise either. Not sure why you smell a scandal, maybe you can elaborate more on that.

Agree with Bishop! Disappear without an explanation to his congregation. If he needed time to care for a sick sister, wouldn't he ask for prayers? It is not shameful to go to the aid of an ill relative!

Now, what other priest did this? Tony Lafache has come to mind. Then there was that Polish priest who left to marry his gf. The diocese tells us all the SAME stories.......they all seem to leave to take care of sick relatives & then they are seen all over town. Hmmm. Fishy, huh?

Polish priest left his church but is still ministering with the Polish National Catholic Church which allows their priests to marry..

Did not this Polish priest get a parish of his own somewhere in PA?

Like billions of other people in the world, he decided to quit his job. The church just has a different way to communicating this because they don't like it to come out that someone has decided not to work for them any longer. It's as simple as that.
