So sad. He was my teacher in the 80s. Praying for all involved.

Knew him. Had dinner with him at my parents' numerous times. Best thing to happen to Our Mother of Perpetual Help in decades and now this. Really creates a feeling of mistrust against the Catholic Church. There have been so many parish priest losers in Lewis Run. The evidence is overwhelming. So disappointing to hear about this. It's pathetic. He needs more than "Perpetual Help" and "Our Mother" to get out of this one.

So sad that those of you who know him are so quick to jump to conclusions. Is it so hard to believe that he actually didn't do anything wrong, do you all really believe that just because it's being reported in such a way that this makes it truth? Does "witch hunt" sound familiar? This man has lived in this area his entire life and after all these years only one person has ever said anything negative against him. While everyone is so quick to side against him, did anyone question the validity of the mother's complaint or do we only question a man who has given his entire life to the service of others?
