The letter, written by the Rev. Kazimierz Chwalek, provincial superior of Massachusetts-based Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, noted the Rev. Ireneusz Chodakowski was placed on administrative leave while Catholic church officials and law enforcement agencies investigated allegations accusing Chodakowski of inappropriate postings on his Facebook page.
Late last week, the Kenosha Police Department detectives concluded an investigation into the matter, along with state investigators, and cleared Chodakowski of any criminal wrongdoing. However, police said Chodakowski exercised poor judgment regarding the posted material.
Chwalek’s letter to parishioners said when the posting “became known, standard procedures for addressing any possible breach of ethical standards went into effect,” leading to Chodakowski being place on administrative leave and the initiation of the investigations.
