FORT ATKINSON — William J. Smith sparked the curiosity of his neighbors almost from the day he moved to Jefferson County last fall.
It had been years since anyone had tried to start a church in Fort Atkinson, and Smith’s effort was particularly unusual.
The article goes on to describe William Smith who was convicted of two-counts of sexual assault with a 15-year old boy while he was pastor of Christ the King Episcopal Church of his efforts at starting his own abbey. I though for sure he would be a former Catholic priest with the whole ‘Vatican-Free" thing. The Episcopal Church is already pretty Vatican-Free as it is.
