In a shocking revelation, a Catholic priest from Pennsylvania, Lawrence Kozak, is accused of misappropriating $40,000 of church funds for personal gaming activities, including popular apps like Candy Crush Saga and virtual slot machines. This misuse of funds, totaling over $214,000 on his Apple ID, has raised serious concerns within the parish and community.

According to reports, Kozak allegedly used the parish's credit card to make in-game purchases on various gaming apps such as Cash Frenzy, Willy Wonka Vegas Casino Slots, and Wizard of Oz Slot Machine Game. Although these apps do not offer real-money rewards, the priest reportedly spent a significant amount on them over a three-year period.

Further investigation revealed that Kozak also utilized the parish card to buy gifts, including a chemistry set and an Amazon Fire tablet, for his goddaughter. This misuse of church funds follows a previous incident involving Monsignor Joseph McLoone, who resigned in 2018 after confessing to embezzling funds for personal expenses.

Kozak is facing serious charges, including theft by unlawful taking, failing to make required disposition of funds, and accessing a device he was unauthorized to. The Archdiocese took swift action by placing Kozak on administrative leave following an extensive review of the parish's financial activities in 2022.

Despite being released on bond, Kozak is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday, adding another layer of suspense to this scandal that has garnered significant attention. Stay tuned for updates on this unfolding story and its repercussions on the affected parish and its congregation.
