Pastor quits under cloud

From Maine-

Police are investigating allegations against a Southwest Harbor man who recently resigned as pastor of the Tremont Congregational Church and St. Brendan’s Anglican Mission.

In a press release, the Rt. Rev. Julian Dobbs, diocesan bishop of the Convocation of Anglican Church in North America, wrote that Wayne Buchanan resigned as pastor of the church on Jan. 7.

“In January, law enforcement contacted Dr. Buchanan regarding a matter unrelated to his ministry as a pastor,” the press release states.

Buchanan, the release continues, has been “removed from his holy orders in the Anglican Church by action of the bishop according to the canons of the church and no longer is a member of the Anglican clergy.”
