a different approach to fundraising?
By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 17, 2009
Monsignor Patrick Brown, pastor of St. Vincent de Paul Church since 1992, began the leave June 4, a day after two FBI agents visited the diocesan headquarters in Clifton and told top officials Brown was under investigation, said Kenneth Mullaney, the diocese attorney.
Probably a coincidence.
The feds are looking into financial irregularities. The Diocese of Paterson doesn't want anyone jumping to conclusions, and issued a statement reminding the public that, among other things, Msgr. Brown "has been active in fund-raising for many charities and educational institutions."
It's not the charitable and educational institutions, we're guessing, that have prompted the FBI's interest.
