Noah Njegovan is the son of the Diocese of Brandon’s bishop, James Njegovan. Njegovan senior recently announced his plans to retire.
A 32-year-old man was arrested after an investigation revealed that he stole more than $200,000 from his former employer, according to Brandon police.
Police identified the man as Anglican priest Noah Njegovan, the son of Brandon Bishop Jim Njegovan. Civil court documents allege that Noah made trips to Sin City, and meals and massages were among the fraudulent purchases using a church credit card.
In total, more than $200,000 in fraudulent purchases were made, documents state — including cash advances, payment of meal, bar and hotel bills and a trio of trips to Las Vegas.
Njegovan junior denies any fraud or misappropriation of funds. No doubt Njegovan’s trips were his way of bringing the good news of the Anglican Church of Canada to ladies working in the massage parlours of Sin City. A generous pastoral response, I think it’s called.
