Father John Corapi's religious order has found him guilty of substance abuse, sexual activity and violating his promise of poverty.
A July 5 press release from the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT) said that while Fr. Corapi was involved in public ministry he had 'sexual relations and years of cohabitation with a woman known to him, when the relationship began, as a prostitute.'
The investigative team also found that he 'repeatedly abused alcohol and drugs,' 'recently engaged in 'sexting' activity with one or more women in Montana,' and holds legal title 'to over $1 million in real estate, numerous luxury vehicles, motorcycles, an ATV, a boat dock, and several motor boats.'
His religious order said it is concerned 'Fr. Corapi is now misleading (many) individuals through his false statements and characterizations.'
'It is for these Catholics that SOLT, by means of this announcement, seeks to set the record straight.'"
