$24.8M settlement for Oblates of St. Francis de Sales

Catholic World News - August 05, 2011

The Wilmington-Philadelphia province of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales has agreed to a $24.8-million settlement with 39 abuse victims. The settlement follows the Diocese of Wilmington’s recent $77.4-million settlement with 154 victims.

While the dozen priests who admitted or were credibly accused of abuse served in various parishes, each taught for a time at the Salesianum School, a Catholic boys’ school in Delaware.

    Dies irae! Dies illa! Iudex ergo cum sedebit. Quid quid latet, apparebit: Nil inultum remanebit...Iuste iudex ultionis, Donum fac remissionis, Ante diem rationis.
