A PARISH priest who lied to his flock about having cancer used money they gave him to help pay for a trip to Lourdes for a “miracle cure”.

When Father Richard Abourjaily’s lies about having prostate cancer were uncovered he was condemned as “delusional” by the head of the Catholic Church, Cardinal George Pell, and suspended from his duties at All Hallows Parish Church at Five Dock in Sydney’s inner west.

Parishioners have been left bewildered and hurt by the actions of the 29-year-old priest they welcomed into their hearts and homes when he was ordained last year.


Alright, I don’t know how to comment on this, so I won’t.
