|Church to Launch Legal Action against Rebel Priest
March 16, 2009
The Catholic Church in Brisbane says it will begin legal proceedings against a sacked priest who has refused to take part in a formal mediation process.
Father Peter Kennedy was last month dismissed from his role at St Mary's in South Brisbane for refusing to adhere to the practices and teachings of the Catholic Church.
Canon lawyer and the Archdiocese of Brisbane Chancellor Father Adrian Farrelly says the mediation process involving former High Court judge Ian Callinan was due to start on Wednesday.
Father Farrelly says Father Kennedy has refused to hand over the Church's keys, or allow the parish's new administrator to take on his position.
