The Vatican rejected Father Radloff's appeal concerning his removal from the parish.
It also rejected a request to order Bishop Cary who removed Radloff to make public the reasons behind it.
Bishop Cary removed Father Radloff as the head of Bend's biggest parish back in October.
For parishioners like Jean Pozzi, who has been a member at St. Francis for 47 years, it's devastating.
"I'm just so sad. I would do anything to help him. He makes everyone feel so special. He would attract all kinds of people to church, non catholics coming to mass. He never wrote his sermons down. He said I guess it's just a gift from the holy spriit. He would just go out there and preach."
Fellow parishioner Joe Corley is also disappointed by the Vatican's decision.
"It stinks. I think what it says is parishioners don't have any say in their parish. That's what it tells me."
It's unclear whether Father Radloff will be assigned to another parish. That decision seems to be in the hands of Bishop Cary.
