Jesuit leader, small school faulted for failure to curb notorious abuser
CWN - April 16, 2012
In back-to-back investigative reports (accessible only to subscribers), the Boston Globe has revealed that a top-ranking Jesuit superior remains in influential posts, years after it emerged that he had failed to take effective action to curb the activities of Donald McGuire, a laicized priest and former Jesuit who is now in prison after conviction on one of dozens of sex-abuse charges. A small private Catholic school in Massachusetts also comes under fire for not alerting alumni after it became known that several of McGuire’s victims were students there. (CWN editor Phil Lawler, who alerted Jesuit authorities after becoming alarmed about McGuire’s relationship with one of those students, plays a role in both stories.)
