Filipino priest flees legal charges in US

November 02, 2011

A priest of the Worcester, Massachusetts diocese has apparently fled the country after being charged with child pornography and with stealing from his parish.

Father Lowe Dongor failed to appear in court for an October 25 hearing, and prosecutors believe that he has returned to the Philippines, his native country. Bishop Robert McManus has written to bishops in the Philippines, warning them that Father Dongor—who was ordained in Worcester after coming to the US—is not in good standing.
