The parish pastor at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Bend has been removed from his leadership position. According to a release by Bishop Liam Cary, Father James Radloff is no longer the pastor of Bend’s Catholic church. Cary was not available for comment on Tuesday but wrote in the release that Radloff remains a priest in good standing and no illegal activity predicated the change in leadership.
Father Julian Cassar, who currently serves as rector of the Cathedral Parish in Baker City, will take over at St. Francis on Oct. 17.
