New Developments in Local Priest Case

January 17, 2007

Pastor Rodney Rodis

Two big developments being reported today in the arrest of a local Catholic priest charged with embezzlement. In an article in the Free Lance-Star, according to the attorney for the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, all sacraments performed by The Rev. Rodney Rodis are still being ruled valid -- that includes marriages, baptisms and confirmations.

Initially, Rodis was charged with embezzling $600,000 from two Louisa churches. But, the Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting this morning that he may have in fact stolen up to a million dollars total. Rodis is due in court tomorrow.
