The Rev. Rod Allers also will remain at his current pastoral assignment unless it is determined it’s best he be reassigned, said John Robbins, director of communication for the Archdiocese of Dubuque.
Robbins would not disclose the amount charged to the credit card for gambling, or what kind of gambling it was.
He did say the amount “is not so much that it can’t be easily repaid.”
The archdiocese will repay Sacred Heart Parish and Allers will repay the archdiocese, according to Robbins.
