Wisniewski was one of four priests removed from parish assignments 6/02 as result of the zero-tolerance policy resulting from the Dallas Bishops’ Conference. Wisniewski was associate pastor for about two years at Notre Dame Church in Malone during the mid 1980s. Diocese said all four priests had substantiated allegations against them and all had been through some form of therapy. No other information found.
