Two nuns accused of stealing funds from school

Two nuns from a Southern California parish stole “substantial” amounts of school funds for personal use over a period of years, according to an internal investigation.

The Rev. Michael Meyers, pastor of St. James Catholic Church in Redondo Beach, sent a letter on Wednesday to families of St. James School where the nuns worked, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Meyers said the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the nuns’ order, was cooperating with the parish and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to determine how much the sisters owe, the report said.
