Catholic Church leaders say a phony priest has been making the rounds in Northern California, going into people’s homes, celebrating mass and possibly asking for money, according to CBS Sacramento.
The Sacramento Diocese says Javier Posada is pretending to
be someone he’s not - a Roman Catholic priest or bishop.
The Diocese believes he’s focusing on the Spanish-speaking
community and has been in Vallejo, Gridley, and possibly the Sacramento
“My experience is a lot of people in the Mexican-American
and in the Latino communities is, they’re very welcoming, and they enjoy
being around their priest, and it’s like he’s taking advantage of their
generosity,” Kevin Eckery with the Diocese told CBS Sacramento.
