Pastor Keith LeBlanc accused

Pastor Keith LeBlanc stands accused of larceny and fraud.

Authorities say the Rev. Keith LeBlanc, former pastor of St. John the Baptist Church, has been issued a summons to appear in Haverhill District Court on Nov. 3 to face charges of larceny over $250 by a single scheme, and fraud. He was not arrested.

It’s such a small thing, stealing from ones church. I almost let it go. But the story came to me from one of his parishioners so I felt obligated to report. The odd things is that LeBlanc replaced  Rev. Dennis Nason, a priest famous for forcing Rev. Ronald Paquin from his job at St. John’s amid accusations of child abuse. It’s no wonder a parishioner thought to send the story to me.

Thanks Mr. M.
