Fake Priests

by Steve Ray on December 30, 2005

My friend Ed Peters, canon lawyer, has written about a recent case of a man impersonating a priest. He writes: 

Fox News reports that a fake priest served for several months in the diocese of Linz (Austria) before being discovered as a fraud. He has since left the area. Of course, imposters can infiltrate any organization, and the trust that Catholics extend to their clergy can be abused. But the incident raises a few questions.
