"She was a terrific nun, other than this problem she had," he said. "She was really well-loved by the parishioners."
Harrington said that it is unlikely Rapp will ever be able to pay back the sum she owes the parishes.
"She is 68 years old, she has no assets, she took a vow of poverty," he said. "She has no means."
However, Rapp's order, The Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, has offered by pay $10,000 each year of her probation to help return the money she owes to the two parishes, he said.
