FROM THE PASTOR
My dear Parishioners:
As a pastor, I am not only responsible for the spiritual well-being of the Church. But also the temporal goods of the church (the grounds, buildings, and of course the financial resources you so generously provide.) Whenever there is a change of pastors, the diocese conducts a routine audit. Sadly, during this recent audit, it was discovered that one of our former employees was found to have mishandled and misappropriated parish funds of a yet to be determined amount.
As a result, working with the Finance Office and the Human Resources Director of the Diocese of Joliet, the individual has been terminated and the police have been notified. We are completing an investigation in cooperation with the authorities and the diocesan offices. We are pursuing full restitution, and an insurance claim will be submitted for funds that may not be fully recovered. On the parish level, we have taken additional steps to increase financial safeguards so that a situation like this will not happen again.
I understand that while this is disappointing and distressing news, I wanted to make you aware of this situation and to reassure you that all steps are being taken to prevent incidents like this in the future. As this is now an active investigation, we cannot comment further about the case.
Let us turn to God during this time of difficulty and offer our prayers for healing.
Fr. Dennis Paul
