An Anglican priest in Manitoba is facing a sentencing hearing next month after he admitted to using a church credit card to make more than 190-thousand dollars in private purchases. 

He pleaded guilty yesterday in a Brandon courtroom to theft.

Court heard the priest used the credit card about one-thousand times during a 31-month period for such things as cash advances, meals, bar and hotel tabs and three trips to Las Vegas.

The Crown says  The Diocese of Brandon has been paid back in full.
