Bishop Callahan CANCELS Fr. Altman

Bishop William J. Callahan, the bishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, today issued a decree removing Fr. James Altman as pastor of St. James the Less and suspending his faculties as a priest.  Fr. Altman has suspected for some time that his removal was forthcoming, but plans to fight the order.  Fr. Altman cares for his 90-year-old parents at the parish rectory of St. James the Less.  It remains to be seen if Bishop Callahan will forcefully remove them from the rectory.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Bishop Callahan at 608-788-7700 or at and let him know how you feel about him removing Fr. Altman from ministry.
