Priest Placed On Leave Was Based On Cape Before
The priest in the Fall River Catholic Diocese who has been placed on leave for alleged misconduct was formerly a pastor on the Cape.
Father Mark Hession allegedly sent inappropriate communications to several parishioners at a church in Seekonk.
He's not allowed to engage in public ministry or present himself as a priest while he's on leave.
Hession was the pastor of Our Lady of Victory in Centerville from 2000 to 2014 and served at St. Joan of Arc Church in Orleans.
He is known for having delivered the Homily at the funeral of Senator Edward Kennedy in 2009.
