N.J. priest resigns because of missing money

"The pastor of St. Therese Roman Catholic Church resigned one week after an audit showed an undisclosed sum of money missing from the 2,800-family parish in Succasunna, according to Kenneth Mullaney, attorney for the Paterson Diocese.

The Rev. Joseph Davis, who had been an administrator at the church for more than two decades, took ill last fall, Mullaney said, and was hospitalized for several months."

Looks like this matter is being swept under the Patterson Diocese's rug. Nice transparency and accountability. How is a priest an administrator for 20 years?

How can the Paterson Diocesan attorney, Kenneth Mullaney, not know for certain when the last audit took place?
