An American priest who was removed from his parish for improvising some prayers during the celebration of Mass has also been suspended from all other priestly duties, reports the Independent Catholic News.
Fr Bill Rowe, 72, who has been parish priest at St Mary Catholic Church in Mount Carmel, Illinois for 18 years, was suspended from his parish from yesterday.
He is now also not allowed to celebrate public Masses or preside at weddings, funerals or baptisms.
The only exception, Fr Rowe told Deacon Greg Kadra, would involve a dying person. He is still allowed to hear a dying person's confession, and baptize or anoint him or her.
