CWN Editor's Note: Father Robert Henry, a 75-year-old priest of the Archdiocese of New York, was convicted last year of stealing over $270,000 his parish and sentenced to probation for five years.

“While a priest who steals from his parish can face canonical charges, the New York archdiocese did not answer questions about whether Henry will face a canonical investigation or a penal process, or about whether he’s made restitution for the money stolen from the parish,” The Pillar reported. “Nor did the archdiocese say whether the priest continues to enjoy faculties for sacramental ministry.”
