Sister Mary Anne Rapp stole the money from St. Mary’s Church in Holley and St. Mark’s Church in Kendall between 2006 and 2011 and the money was finally found to be missing during an audit.
“This involves her over a long period of time taking money from the collection plate from the church on a weekly basis. Lying to parishioners. Diverting checks that were payable to the church and also lying to the church and eventually investigators because she didn’t admit this immediately,” said Orleans County district attorney Joe Cardone
Rapp will also have to pay back the money she stole and perform 100 hours of community service.
