A Florida pastor in ecclesial limbo, even after being cleared by a state attorney’s investigation into taking financial advantage of an elderly parishioner, is being supported by parishioners who want him reinstated.
Fr. Christopher Senk, 67, pastor of St. Isabel Parish on Sanibel Island in the Diocese of Venice, Florida, was put on paid administrative leave Oct. 28 of last year by Bishop Frank Dewane until a church investigation is completed. Senk’s case is being examined by the Vatican.
