Msgr. Kevin Wallin's Arrest comes with a Sense of Shock and Concern on the part of the Diocese

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.
