Abp Burke seeks laicization of wayward priest

I regret that I was unable to make a post about Dominic Savio last night. Either way, I will make 9 posts total, even if they run past the saint's feast day - March 9th.

In the ongoing saga at St. Stanislaus Kostka polish parish in St. Louis, Archbishop Burke had apparently scheduled another meeting with Fr. Marek Bozek and the wayward priest failed to show. As a result. the Archbishop is taking steps to thave the priest laicized.

This priest truly has a troubled history. I have prayed for him, and the lay board that hired him with the hopes they would come to their senses.

What is interesting here is that the lay board thought they were hiring a traditional priest. In a comment found at the bottom of the CWNews article, it sounds as if some of his more recent activities - "ordaining" women - resulted in an influx of all kinds of characters into that parish. The Archdiocese has set up another polish parish - St. Agnes.

Go read more about Fr. Marek Bozek and Abp Burke.
