Notes: Placed on leave 2003 after recent revelation of 20-year complaint of “inappropriate conduct.” Michell “strongly” denied the accusation. He was apparently reinstated because he retired as pastor of St. Patrick’s in Southold in June, 2010. As of 2012, he is shown as Pastor Emeritus and is still performing funerals and other events.
