As indicated in the post below, the findings of the National Review Board included scathing criticism of the principal "treatment centers" to which priests with sexual problems are typically sent.

Leslie Payne deserves no small credit for having anticipated the National Review Board by seven years in her lucid and devastating exposé Salt for Their Wounds, published in the February 1997 Catholic World Report. Her essay deserves a careful re-reading. At the very least, it will put ample flesh on the bones of the Review Board's indictment

    I attended a Catholic all-female high school which was on the same property as the initial St. Luke's Institute. The building was first used as housing for girls interested in becoming nuns before becoming St. Luke's. Next to my school was a public co-ed high school. Their football field ran in back of St. Luke's. All within easy walking distance. This poor planning was not fair to troubled clergy, nor the students. My high school was closed down a few years after St. Luke's opened.
