Potential Father Corapi Update

January 27, 2013 | 14 Comments

I received an email notification from Google today regarding Father Corapi (well, I get them just about every day, but this one caught my attention).

Apparently there is a blogger down in Texas who happens to know someone up in Montana (Father Corapi’s residence) who has seen him. I direct you to there blog:

I got the following update last night from a Montana resident who claims to be in the know.  They say Fr. Corapi lives in a gated community in Whitefish, Montana, on Whitefish Lake.  He is seen about riding his Harley.  He never wears clerics or any religious garb.  He is not known to be active in any parish. 

He appears to have left the priesthood for good.  I have known many people who held out pious hopes that he would turn up in a monastery somewhere, offering prayer and penance.  That isn’t likely to occur. He seems to be very happy with his millions and his secular life.

Read the rest there. Spike up their stats, comment here if you like.

But most importantly, pray for Father Corapi’s return to the Church.

  1. John A. Corapi is not a recluse. He certainly isn't living in a monastery or hiding anywhere. He is often seen in Montana. He picks up his mail at the post office in Whitefish, Montana quite regularly.

    You might be interested to know that Mr. Corapi owns property in Flathead County, Montana. Property records and tax records for Flathead County are available online. If you search this website, you can learn Mr. Corapi's mailing address. You can also see his actual, physical address. You can see when he paid his property taxes. You can even see where he docks his yacht.

  2. Hi James,

    Thanks for sharing. I had found this information way back in the summer and was wondering if I should post it or not, but figured I wouldn't. I wonder if anyone else has figured this out and mailed him anything.

    God bless.

  3. Hi, Jeff.

    My view is that I am not violating anyone's privacy if the information is already a matter of public record.

    I posted the information that I did for a reason. There are many people who are hoping that John Corapi is somehow preparing to return to the priesthood. I 've heard rumors that John Corapi is living with his old order in Texas. Of course, none of those rumors are true.

    By all outward appearances, John Corapi has no intention of returning to the priesthood. He certainly isn't living with a religious order. He seems quite content living a secular life in Montana. If anyone doubts that, take a look at this website.

    As you can see, voting records in Montana are also available online. John A. Corapi (Date of Birth: May 20, 1947), voted in the Montana in 2012 general election.

    Thanks for running a great blog. God bless.

  4. We can see the tax records but we still don't know much of his lifestyle. I could very well be wrong but I don't think we can say whether or not he has a yacht. He has a slip down at the local yacht docks but I checked their site and it looks like there are an awful lot of small fishing boats along with some pricier boats. Given what I saw of his house in his Black Sheepdog video, it didn't seem like he was living a totally luxurious lifestyle. Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending his actions but the truth is that we don't know the truth. One person said that he's living in a gated community on a lake and I've read someone respond by saying they had been to his house and the “gated community on a lake” description was NOT accurate. We just don't know. I guess we just need to continue our prayers for him.


  5. People like father john because he is a real man with amazing leadership skills. He is not a closet homosexual that preys on the weak or a feminine male cast in a pius position. His story telling and relative examples are almost unmatched in the church. He is a smart driven man with extreem strength and weakness!

  6. Anonymous I agree I liked Father Corapi and so did my Husband, We really learned a lot about Our Faith, started watching EWTN because of Fr.Corapi. My Husband, who passed away in June really liked him, and I have to say Fr,Corapi had a lot to do with Leading my Husband back to the Church he loved so much. He started going to confession church said his Rosary, This was way before he became ill due to Lymphoma. He had his last rites not knowing he was dying, He always asked to see a Priest when he was in the Hospital received Communion everyday, I truly thank Fr.Corapi for leading my husband back to Christ, I wonder about all the People who bad mouth Father, have they ever had the impact he did on so many! Where ever Fr.Corapi is I know the Blessed Virgin & Our Lord Jesus Christ will protect and guide him. I couldn't care less what he did or didn't do. And no one should dare speculate. No, my dear brethren, while anyone passes his time in watching the conduct of other people, he will neither know nor belong to God. St.John Vianney

  7. I love it .. some one who knows someone and sees what appears to be

    gripping truth … is this the best you have to offer

  8. Our Lord says not to judge our priests. No one is to judge him but our Lord. He alone. All's what we can do is pray for him. Extend a helping hand to our priests. No one but God knows his heart.

  9. I'm not Catholic, and to be honest, never really liked the Catholic church. That said, I found Father Corapi to be one of the most inspirering preachers I have ever heard. He preached a universal message that anyone could relate to. I will be forever grateful to him. Is anyone shocked to find out he was just a man, not being perfect. I don't ever recall him saying he was perfect. The Catholic church in my opinion lost a true gem. He was obviously inspired by God. Anyone who heard him speak could easily see that. Perhaps his downfall was that his preaching inspiration did not come from the Catholic church. His teachings came from within. Thats why he appealed to so many people such as myself. Mr. Corapi you are greatly missed. Thank you for reminding me of the beauty and simplicity of God's word!!!

  10. His “community” and the bishop of Corpus Christi just prior to calling Fr. Corapi “back to community” had to shell out almost 2 million dollars to settle the case concerning one of SOLT's priests who molested a guy and then tried to hire a hit man to murder him in order to keep him silent. interesting!

    Anonymous, I'm calling you out on this one. This is made up. Provide some evidence as there is absolutely nothing online that even would remotely point you as being correct.

  12. I agree with Jeff. Seems liketo a story. Pray for former ftr john and the church. The faith/religion is pure, man is not!

  13. Police: Priest solicited murder of boy accusing him of sex abuse

    The teen, after struggling with the abuse, told a school counselor, who notified authorities, Rhodes said. He filed suit in April against Fiala, as well as the archdioceses of San Antonio, Texas, and Omaha, Nebraska — where Fiala was before Texas — and Fiala's religious order, the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, the attorney said.

  14. Now 19, the alleged victim filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of San Antonio and the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT), a society of apostolic life based in the Diocese of Corpus Christi in Texas that Father Fiala joined when he left Nebraska 15 years ago, as well as the Archdiocese of Omaha and the Diocese of Corpus Christi. The Society, the Diocese of Corpus Christi and the Archdiocese of Omaha settled with the plaintiff Jan. 27, Deacon McNeil said. The Archdiocese of San Antonio announced its settlement Jan. 21.
