Rev. Stan Strycharz listens to a parishioner of St. Leo Catholic Church after a prayer gathering and celebration of the 20th anniversary of the ordination of Strycharz on Wednesday at Quail West Country Club in Bonita Springs. Strycharz, the priest of St. Leo Catholic Church in Bonita Springs, was suspended by Bishop Frank Dewane in July 2010 pending investigations into allegations that he fathered a child and mishandled financial and personnel issues. About 400 people attended Wednesday's meeting that was held in support of Strycharz and organized by a group called Save the Southwest Florida Diocese. Lexey Swall/Staff
