Catholic priest at CMU on leave for ‘boundary violations,’ says Saginaw Diocese

MOUNT PLEASANT, MI — A priest in the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw is on administrative leave due to what the diocese is calling “boundary violations.”

The Rev. Denis Heames, who serves as parochial administrator for St. Mary University Parish in Mount Pleasant, was placed on leave last week, according to a statement released by the diocese Monday, July 6.

The diocese said the alleged incident or incidents that led to Heames’ leave did not involve minors and are not criminal in nature. The diocese declined to provide any additional information.

Erin Looby, a spokeswoman for the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, said the diocese would report any indication of illegal activity to law enforcement.

According to the statement released by the diocese, Bishop Joseph Cistone spoke with parishioners Sunday, July 5, at the Mount Pleasant church.
