Sitka Priest Leaves for Evaluation

Ed Ronco, KCAW – Sitka
The priest removed from his post at St. Gregory Catholic Church in Sitka has left for evaluation at a location in the Lower 48. Father Edmund Penisten resigned the pastorship of St. Gregory shortly after he was suspended by Bishop Edward Burns, leader of the Juneau Diocese, which oversees the Sitka parish. The move came after church leaders received notice that pornographic material might have been accessed on parish computers.
