Gambling with church contributions
The long-serving pastor of a suburban parish is under investigation for allegedly using church money to feed a gambling habit, according to a New York Roman Catholic Church official.My father used to joke about a preacher who stole from his church and instead of firing him, they made him stay there and preach it out. It appears this congregation is turning the matter over to the DA's office.
The Rev. Patrick Dunne of Our Lady of Sorrows Church in White Plains took a significant amount of church money and has been permanently removed from the parish, the chancellor of the Archdiocese of New York said.
