Catholic priest easing his way back to work after bizarre incident


Springfield - A catholic priest who took a leave of absence following a bizarre incident last year, returns to ministry.


Father Tom Donovan served at Saint Aloysius Church in Springfield when he had to call 911, last year for help. He called 911 to get out of handcuffs and a bondage mask.


The Catholic Diocese said the incident stemmed from job related stress. Father Donovan is now cleared to gradually return to serving the church, at a location in Alton.
