The Catholic Bishop of Lexington says a Kentucky priest is ex-communicated from the Roman Catholic Church.
Father Ken Waibel has advertised… he’ll say mass this Sunday in Lexington… at a new church called St. Mychal the Martyr. The church is affiliated with the Orthodox Catholic Church of America…. which is ‘not’ connected in any-way to the Roman Catholic Church.
Excommunication means Waibel has separated himself from the church… and is not a priest in good standing.
He says Sunday’s service will be similar to a Roman Catholic mass, and he welcomes all people.
Waibel has spent the last year on an involuntary leave of absence… after pleading guilty last year… to exposing himself in a park.
If he appears in a black rain coat with a stole, I would advise leaving. I am surprised though that the Orthodox Church of America would allow him to be affiliated with them.
