Juliusz Paetz, the previous Roman Catholic ecclesiastical overseer of Poznan in Poland who was prohibited from dynamic help after charges he explicitly manhandled youthful ministers and pastors, has kicked the bucket. He was 84.
Poland’s Episcopate said Friday that, in counsel with the Vatican, the memorial service will be a private one and will be held in the house of prayer in Poznan. The date was not declared.
In 2002, after claims of misuse made by some youthful clerics, the Vatican prohibited Paetz from serving and church functions. He denied the claims and had been attempting to have the boycott lifted.
