Next week Bishop Emeritus Edmond Carmody is returning to work in the diocese of Tyler. For the last ten years Carmody has been working in the diocese of Corpus Christi.
During the 1990s Carmondy was the Bishop of Tyler and during his time as bishop he helped cover up for at least two predator priests. One of those predator priests was able to flee the country, avoiding justice and potentially hurting more innocent children.
It is a callous and hurtful move to allow Carmondy to return to the diocese where he allowed so much pain to befall his diocese.
We hope anyone who saw, suspected, or suffered child sex crimes will take this opportunity to speak up, get help and start healing.
