On behalf of the Finance Council of the Diocese of Venice in Florida, I am responding to allegations made in a letter from some priests in the diocese dated Jan. 17, 2014 that found its way to the local press and was published on May 22, 2014.
The letter alleges “no financial transparency in the bishop’s office. Of particular concern, for example, is the acquisition of properties, which are reported in news journals but are kept secret from clergy and the laity of the diocese. There are many examples of excessive and apparently impulsive spending of diocesan funds which appear unmonitored by the customary controls.”
