Canadian bishop resigns following $13M abuse settlement
September 28, 2009
The bishop of a Nova Scotia diocese has resigned less than two months after he agreed to a $13-million abuse settlement with alleged abuse victims. Bishop Raymond Lahey, 69, was ordained Bishop of Saint George’s (Newfoundland) in 1986 and transferred to the Diocese of Antigonish in 2003. Nova Scotia’s leading prelate, Archbishop Anthony Mancini of Halifax, has been named apostolic administrator of the diocese.
