Pastor at Waterloo church arrested on theft charges

| October 14, 2010

Reverend Paul Hartig, the senior pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church in Waterloo, has been charged in connection with thefts from the church.

Waterloo Regional Police say the 46-year-old from Kitchener was arrested Wednesday, following an investigation into thefts of money from the church in 2009 and 2010. He is charged with theft over $5,000.

He was released on a Promise to Appear, and a court date is scheduled for Jan. 17, 2011.

Hartig describes his background on his blog "Confessions of a Parish Pastor," saying he grew up in the Preston area of Cambridge, completed an undergraduate degree through Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters through Waterloo Lutheran Seminary.
