Michigan diocese’s vicar general accused of sexually harassing younger priest; accuser placed on leave
February 07, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Father Dennis Stillwell was appointed vicar general of the Diocese of Gaylord in 2016. In August 2018, Father Matthew Cowan accused Father Stillwell sexually harassing him three years earlier; the diocesan review board “concluded that the allegation did not reach the level of credible and substantiated sexual misconduct.” In January, Bishop Stephen Raica placed Father Cowan on leave, and the diocese said in a statement that the bishop’s decision was unrelated to the allegation.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
