Church cash may be missing

Marie Rohde reported in the May 10, 2008 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on possible additional problems for St. John Vianney Church in Brookfield.
cash donated during weekly services over an extended period could be missing, parishioners were told in a letter sent by the parish administrator.

Three parishioners raised concerns after the drug arrest of the then-pastor. The suspicious patterns weren't described. I've read that sometimes when a pastor is suddenly out of the picture, donations appear to suddenly go up.

    There was also something on the news about a finacial problem at St. Mathias Parish. I did not hear the details. I am sure that Archbishop Weakland and Bishop Sklba are proud of their fine example.

  2. Maybe we're both getting ahead of the published reports.

  3. It's also possible that a number of people decided to MAKE contributions with the exit of the former pastor.
