Religious superior failed to tell other dioceses that priest had been banned from ministry
February 23, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Father Joseph Jablonski, a priest of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, was banned from ministry in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2014 because of words to a boy that “amounted to sexual abuse”; the diocese reported the incident to law enforcement. The priest then worked in three Illinois dioceses because “the provincial at the time didn’t feel any obligation to contact any other diocese.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
