Rochester Bishop Matthew Clark, March 1997: Clark also told the symposium that he had asked a priest in his diocese who had blessed "holy unions" of same-sex couples to stop doing so. "My concern is not so much the practice, but that [such ceremonies] communicate to the wider community that the issue is settled," he said. Both Gumbleton and Clark spoke optimistically about the church's ability to change its stand on same sex relationships.
Abuse webline poster, March 2003: I am in search of anyone with information about a Rev. Michael Volino, who is currently assigned to a parish in Rochester, NY (Greece) He is realyy creepy, ex. I belong to the parish where he is now, and my friend, an altarboy from his last parish still does mass here with him at my church. He kinda scares me cause he seems to have an unnatural liking to teens....what can I do. 'Nervous in Greece."
Rochester news story, March 2005: Federal authorities allege in court papers that a Rochester-area Catholic priest possessed child pornography and visited Web sites that trafficked in child pornography. The Rev. Michael Volino was charged this morning with interstate receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Child pornography was discovered by a technology specialist at the Diocese of Rochester who was repairing the 41-year-old priests computer. ...Volino is a priest at Saint John the Evangelist Church of Greece [NY]. The affidavit contends that Volino told the FBI that he had been involved in counseling for three years but had not stopped looking at child pornography.
