Guilford church worker offers vague apology for theft

| February 6, 2011

GUILFORD — Considering that forgiveness is a pillar of Catholicism, John Polletta may be in luck.

After being arrested in the theft of money from collection baskets at the church where he worked, Polletta is asking the parish for forgiveness and has paid back the funds.

In a vague apology letter printed in St. George Church’s Jan. 30 bulletin, Polletta wrote to church members “with sadness and regret” without ever specifying the crime he committed, hoping that they will accept his act of contrition.

“I have been proud to faithfully serve this congregation for many years. It is against this background that I say both sadness and regret. My sadness comes from the breach of the bond of trust between us and regret that I was the person who breached that trust,” Polletta wrote in the short, six-sentence letter. “Excuses and apologies will never suffice. But, I hope that my remorse and contrition will be accepted.’
