Priest Resigns

More problems in the church ... this time on Hilton Head Island in Beaufort County.

Saint Francis by the Sea Catholic Church needs a new pastor following the resignation of Father Michael McCafferty.  McCafferty admits that he borrowed thousands of dollars of church money without paying it back.

A parishoner complained to the diocese.  The diocese performed an audit and discovered the missing money.  McCafferty has sinced payed back all of the money; but is stepping down at the end of the year.
