Our Priests' Response

From the Pastor's Pen - August 11, 2019

Fr. Nickolai and I both addressed the painful area of clergy abuse of children (see below for link to a brief summary), after Archbishop Carlson published a list of any priests with “credible allegations” going back 50 years. This was in advance of a list soon to come out by the Missouri Attorney General. While this is a broad societal problem, with similar percentages of offenders among all groups, special harm is done to those who are victimized by someone in a position of great trust and faith. The Church continues efforts of screening applicants at every stage, and monitoring all in ministry, ordained or not.
