News of Msgr. Kevin Wallin's arrest comes with a sense of shock and concern on the part of the Diocese and the many people of Fairfield County who have known him as a gifted, accomplished and compassionate priest.

Msgr. Wallin resigned as Pastor of St. Augustine Parish in June 2011, a post he had held for nine years. At the time, he told parishioners and friends that he was struggling with a number of health and personal issues. He was granted a sabbatical in July of 2011.

During his sabbatical, the Diocese became concerned about Msgr. Wallin's wellbeing and has reached out to him. To date, he has not spoken directly with diocesan officials.

His faculties for public ministry were suspended in May 2012, and he has not been reassigned. The Diocese stands ready to help as it has throughout the past two years. We ask for prayers for Msgr. Wallin during the difficult days ahead for him.

The United States Attorney's Office has informed the Diocese of Bridgeport that Michael Moynihan has pled guilty to federal criminal charges in connection with his financial improprieties at St. Michael¹s Parish in Greenwich where he was formerly pastor.   His plea was entered in Federal District Court in New Haven.
