MN--Priest in Duluth admits abuse; Bishop still pays him

For immediate release: Friday, Aug. 5, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

A priest living in northern Minnesota and who’s still being paid by Catholic officials has basically admitted sexually abusing kids in Guam. We urge Duluth church employees – from bookkeepers to bishops – to aggressively seek out others who may have be hurt by this child molesting cleric.
