Reliable sources tell me that perjuring priest Bob Malm is headed to St. Gabriel’s in Marion Massachusetts, where he will serve as interim.
Located in the area in which Bob grew up, the new calling affords Bob the opportunity to live in an area familiar to him, and where his late mother’s family is well known.
It would be interesting to see how the new parish deals with Bob’s issues. While he doubtless attributes the latter to a “disgruntled former parishioner,” the facts should speak loudly to diocesan and parish officials:
Declining Grace Church membership and pledging units since 2014.
Trying to drag a dying woman into court.
Going after innocent family members.
Lying to church members repeatedly, including his vestry.
Yes, Bob can turn on the superficial charm, but friendly isn’t the same as faithful. Folks at St. Gabriel’s are well-advised not to conflate the two. Let’s just hope that St. Gabriel’s, which presently has an ASA of 120 and growing giving, is not injured by Bob Malm’s toxic conduct.
It’s also worth noting that Bob, to my knowledge, has no formal interim training.
