Pastor of rebel St. Louis parish offers to step down

Catholic World News - November 23, 2009

The pastor of a rebellious parish in St. Louis, Missouri, has offered to step down if his departure will help to resolve a longstanding dispute between the parish and the St. Louis archdiocese. "I do not want my personal circumstances to impede what is best for St. Stanislaus," said Father Marek Bozek, a priest who was laicized earlier this year because of his repeated defiance of Church authority. The St. Louis archdiocese has brought suit to regain control of St. Stanislaus parish, where a lay board of trustees has resisted all efforts by the archdiocese to assert control over the affairs of the parish. The lawsuit could come to trial early next year. Bozek's offer to resign appeared to be a bid to resolve the case before trial.
