The popular priest of a Far South Side parish has a new home.

Father Dan Mallette was ordered to leave the rectory at St. Margaret of Scotland church after he turned 80 because of church rules.

Mallette fought the order. But now he has moved into a private residence in suburban Oak Lawn.

Mallette will still get medical assistance from the archdiocese.

Mallette is currently working as a counselor at the Cook County Jail.
