Brooklyn Lawsuit Announced

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Oct 01, 2003

As expected, attorney Michael Dowd today announced a lawsuit charging twenty-four priests of the Diocese of Brooklyn with sexual abuse, according to Newsday. The announcement comes just two days before the installation of the seventh Bishop of Brooklyn, Nicholas DiMarzio.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    "I have no belief in the church itself. I do not go to church," said Salvatore Carlino, a Deer Park businessman-one of the plaintiffs. Our Holy Father John Paul II is presently ill & frail, but I am thankful for his Reign as Pontificate with contributions of sincere efforts for the Catholic Faith. It's truly sad that the scandals have denied many and we are suffering the results of blind trust for some of our clergy. Spiritual Conviction is truly needed! Lord keep us close to your Heart
