Not good!

Share Button

Sorry everyone, the computer gremlins are at it again!  I use two monitors to work.  A necessity.  Well, tearly this evening I powered up my computer only to discover that my  second monitor has given up the ghost.

Not good!

Worse.  The programs which were set to automatically open on that monitor could not be viewed, or accessed in any way, shape or form.  As a result, I was unable to access the Control Panel to change the monitor settings from dual to single monitor.

A dilemma!!!

After much time spent fiddling about trying to access various programs I finally decided to remove the monitor to scrap it.  Well, lo and behold, as soon as I removed the connector, up popped a screen on the functioning monitor –  the control panel for setting the dual monitors! :)  I was thus able to set the controls for one monitor only, and thus able to access all programs on that single screen.

I had several things which I had hoped to accomplish this evening, however, it’s getting late. All being well I will pick up what needs to be done tomorrow evening (commitments most of the day tomorrow ).

On the list of things to do are further postings on the Father Henry Maloney page, both a scan of Part 2 of the Bancroft Times article, and the redacted Statement of Claim of a man who was sexually molested by Father Maloney 60 years ago, before he got his sullied hands on young Mike. I will call this victim  “Joe.”

I promise that one way or the other I will get at least one of those posted by day’s end tomorrow, and that both will be posted by, at the latest,  supper time on Saturday.

Please keep Mike and Joe and their families in your prayers.

Enough for now,

In case you missed the news, it was another adjournment for former Archdiocese of Regina youth volunteer Nathan Labatt:

05 October 2015:  Two Local Court Cases Adjourned Once Again

Labatt’s next court date is:

19  October 2015: 10 am Humboldt courthouse, Humboldt, Sask (805 8th Avenue)

It gets tiring, doesn’t?  I always think that if I get fed up with the revolving doors in courtrooms how must the complainants feel?  Please keep them in your prayers.


I have been working on the Father Henry Maloney page.  It’s taking longer than I thought.  Every time I was about to let you know that I was working on the page I came across something else which I felt needed a closer look, so I’d think I’d just dig into that and then let you know that the page was coming together.

Two days later, and I am still working on it, and will be adding more information over the next few days.

As you see,  a picture of Father Maloney has been added, as has a picture of Mike at age 16, and another of Mike with his family taken several months after Mike ran to get away from his molester.  Note the  arms crossed firmly across his chest.

I could not help but think as I posted that family picture how sorely and cruelly betrayed the whole family by the depraved actions of a trusted – and obliviously very well c0nnected -priest.

There is now a fair bit of information on the page, and, as I say, more to come.  What I have been surprised to discover as  I read and dig through files is that there are a number of connections between Father Henry Maloney and people I know or know of in Ottawa.

Note too that Part 1 of the expose from the Bancroft Times is posted in three parts

(1)  Catholic Priest Falls From Grace first page

(2)   Catholic Priest Falls From Grace second page

(3)   Catholic Priest Falls From Grace final page

The scanning was not my hard work.  A thoughtful and kind soul took the time to scan and send it my way :)  Meanwhile I am waiting for a copy of the newspaper in the mail, but it truly is travelling via snail mail and taking it’s sweet time getting here!  I know I will not be able to scan any better than the above.  I do hope however to get a text version of the article.

Part 2 should be on the stands today.  Scans are welcome :)

Also note that Bishop Mulhall’s statement has been posted:

02 October 2015:  Statement of Bishop Michael Mulhall re “allegations of sex abuse by Father Henry Maloney”

Note in the above the following:  “…the diocese chose to respond to the alleged victim in a respectful way.”

“Alleged”  victim?!  Mike is a victim.  He is not an “alleged” victim.  He is a victim.

“They” just do not learn.

On that note  I will carry on gathering and posting information.  The first task right now  is to list the documents posted on “NEW”  to the site.  Once that is done I will resume my usual practice of listing all newly-posted documents and articles and pictures there.

Enough for now,

Another Pembroke priest added to ‘the list’

Share Button

Well, sad to say on one hand, but happy to do so ont he other, there is yet another name to add to the list of those “Accused.”

In the Spring of this year the Diocese of Pembroke, Ontario settled a lawsuit out of court for an undisclosed amount.  In the lawsuit Mike Fitzgerald identifies Father Henry Maloney (Henri-Joseph) as his molester.

Maloney, now deceased, was ordained for the Diocese of Pembroke in 1947 1941

I have been advised by a reliable source that Part 1 of a two-part article  which ran earlier this week in a Bancroft, Ontario newspaper has prompted Bishop Michael Mulhall, the Bishop of the Pembroke Diocese, to issue a statement to his clergy regarding the article.  The Bancroft paper unfortunately is not online, but I understand that Part One is a full 2-pages detailing the abuse and the circumstances surrounding the abuse endured by Mike.  I will hopefully have a fully copy of the article to post early next week.   I will also post a copy of the Bishop’s tomorrow.

Father “Henry” Maloney will be added to the list on the weekend, along with what information I have on hand regarding both his years in the Pembroke Diocese and the abuse of young Mike Fitzgerald.

Well done, Mike!  Well done for finding the courage to speak out.  Good for you!  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I hear there is another Maloney victim who has come forward too.  I commend him too.

More to come….

Enough for now,

His first opportunity to plead guilty?!!!

Share Button

Former Cornwall Classical College student and teacher Father Ronald Leger csv has a court date today at 1 pm:

 30 September 2015:  1 pm, courtroom #301, Winnipeg Provincial courthouse (408 York Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba

I was unable to find out exactly what this is for, but, since the Viatorian priest entered a guilty plea 13 July 2015, I think it must be  either sentencing or a sentencing hearing?

Hopefully someone within easy driving distance in the city can attend?

Please keep the victims and their families in yer prayers.  And, please, if you hear or see any news of the outcome of today’s proceedings,   pass on the news.


An article on yesterday’s  Eric Dejaeger guilty pleas  yesterday in Iqaluit on the Edmonton Alberta charges.

30 September 2015:  Nunavut pedophile priest convicted on four more sex charges 

The victims:  a six-year-old girl and her brother from one  family, and a little Aboriginal altar boy from another.  In each case Dejaeger – then a seminarian – had befriended the families of his victims.  Dejaeger was, in fact, so trusted that he occasionally baby sat.

Note the following:

A mitigating factor in sentencing the judge should consider, Kempt said, is that Dejaeger pleaded guilty to the charges as soon as was possible.

“He didn’t want these [complainants] to have to testify at trial… he doesn’t want to see anyone else suffer through that process,” Kempt said.

Can you believe it?  Those charges were  laid November 2011.  We are truly to believe that this was Dejeager’s  first opportunity in four years to plead guilty?  I’m sorry, but  for one don’t buy that:  not for a moment.  If Dejaeger had wanted to enter a guilty plea to the charges in the past nearly four years he would have found a way to do so, and his lawyer would have found a way to make it happen.

Note that no matter the sentence handed down by the  judge on 21 October Dejeager will probably not spend one single extra day in jail for his repeated and long term sex abuse of children while he was masquerading as a seminarian. No matter the sentence, it will, according to what we read here,  run concurrently to the sentence Dejaeger is now serving for his crimes in Nunavut.  Dejaeger is currently serving 11 years of an 18-year sentence (he received 2:1 time).

Is there a possibility though that he could spend a year or two extra behind bars as a ‘gentle’ reminder to both Dejaeger and others that he was in full serial molest mode well before he was serving in the North as an ordained Oblate priest?

For example, if Justice Cooper rules that Dejeager will serve five years for each of the victims, that would mean he will serve 15 years.  The 15 years is to run concurrent.  I’m not sure if the Nunavut sentence of 18 years whittled to 11 with 2:1 credit for time served would cover the 15 years?  Does anyone know?  I get the impression from what I read that there is no way  that Dejaeger will spend one extra day behind bars for the horrific  abuse he inflicted upon these Alberta children and their families.  A shame.

But, yes, – it is a guilty plea.  A relief I am sure for the courageous victims and their families.  Please keep them all in your prayers as they await sentencing at 1:30 pm on 21 October 2015.

Enough for now,

“GUILTY”: Three more Dejaeger victims in Edmonton

Share Button

Ex priest, Oblate and serial molester Eric Dejaeger pleaded guilty in the Iqaluit courthouse today to four charges related to the sex abuse of three young people, male and female,  between 1975 and 1978 in the Edmonton Alberta.    At  that time Dejager, who had arrived in Canada from his native Belgium in 1974, was a seminarian studying at Newman Theological College in  Edmonton, Alberta. He was ordained in 1978.  After ordination he served as an Oblate priest in Canada’s North.  Dejaeger has left countless victims in his since his arrival in Canada.  He was convicted in 199o,  and again 1991.  In 1995 he fled the country for Belgium when faced with new charges – he was deported in 2011 and eventually faced 80 more charges related to sex abuse of young people in Nunavut.  The charges included those bestiality

The Edmonton charges were laid in Edmonton.  For years the Edmonton victims thought there would be a trial in Edmonton, – always waiting and waiting for things to wrap up  in Iqaluit so that the process which started in Edmonton could continue.  It was only in the last several months that they learned that the charges would be handled in Iqaluit.

Need I say that the  damage this perverted human being has done here in Canada is immense. Immense.

Dejaeger will return to court at 1:30 pm 22 October 2015 for sentencing.

I earnestly hope and pray that the Crown pushes for sentencing for these Edmonton crimes to run consecutive – NOT concurrent – to the 11 years Dejaeger is currently serving.

And, a final note for the night, well done to all three victims who found the  courage to come forward four years ago and have waited and waited all these  years to see justice done!

My thoughts and prayers at this time are with ALL Dejaeger’s victims, those who found the courage to go to police, and the many who remain fearful and ashamed or afraid to come forward.

Enough for now ,

The latest….

Share Button

I see no news as yet re ex priest and serial molester Eric Dejaeger’s court date in Iqaluit today.  There surely should be news fairly soon.

I do hope and pray that if, as anticipated, Dejeager pleads guilty to some of the Edmonton charges that he will receive a sentence which does NOT run concurrent to the 11-year-sentence he is now serving for molesting all of those children in Nunavut.


Clerical molester Father Ronald Leger csv has a  courtdate in Winnipeg tomorrow afternoon:

30 September 2015: 1 pm, courtroom #301, Winnipeg Provincial courthouse (408 York Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba )

Leger, a Viatorian priest who both attended the Cornwall Classical College as a boy and taught there after ordination, entered a guilty plea 13 July 2015 to charges related to the sex abuse of three boys dating to the 1980s and between 20012 and 2004.

Some may recall that Father Leger was a good friend of convicted molester Father Paul Lapierre.  Lapierre, who was acquitted in Cornwall and convicted in Quebec on charges laid by the same victim,  Claude Marleau.  In fact, during his Cornwall sex abuse trial Lapierre made mention of Leger several times,  including reference to the going away party for Father Leger which started at a home in Cornwall Ontario and wound up at a cottage in Glenn Walter owned Father Leger’s brother, Guy Leger

Please keep the victim in your prayers.


In the event that some missed the updates posted over a week ago, here they are:

(1)  Father Yvon Arsenault (Archdiocese of Monton, new Brunswick)

I left a message for Father Arsenault’s lawyer hoping he would call and allow me then to clarify what is happening. No call.

Here is the latest regarding upcoming dates:

MONCTON charges: TRIAL: 11 October 2016: 09:30 am, 45 Assumption Moncton Courthouse Moncton NB (45 Assumption Blvd)

MIRAMICHI charges: 01 February 2016: 1:30 pm, possibly a trial date will be set

Please not that both dates are for next year, 2016.  Note too that the Miramichi charges are proceeding to trial on their own.  They have not been merged with the Moncton charges.

(2)  Nathan Labatt (youth volunteer, Archdiocese Regina, Saskatchewan)

The next courtdate for Nathan Labatt is:

05 October 2015: 10 am Humboldt courthouse, Humboldt, Sask (805 8th Avenue)

(3)  Father Paul Andre Harvey (Diocese of Chicoutimi, Quebec)

Father Paul Andre Harvey, who entered a guilty plea 16 June 2015, has been sentenced to six years for his crimes

11 September 2015: “Crimes of sexual violence on children: Fr. Harvey sentenced to six years in prison” google translation & related article

Six years!  There are a total of 39 victims.  That ism of course, known victims.

Six years!

A paltry six years.  He’s be out and about in what?  four years?  m aybe three?

Six years.

I call this the crumbs under the table.  Victims alas have no  choice but to take what pittance of a sentence is thrown their way, thankful at least that he is no threat to children while he serves a few years behind bars for his horrific crimes.

(4)  Gary Hoskins (Diocese Saint George’s, Newfoundland (now Diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador)

Prior to the current charges Father Hoskins had been previously convicted recycled and taken into Archdiocese of Toronto by Cardinal Emmett Carter. (guilty plea 1987) After parishioners found out that their priest was convicted molester they protested vehemently.  In 1995 Hoskins- still very much a Roman Catholic priest –  began to ‘work’ as a social worker with the Center for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto .

I have heard via the grapevine that in the past year or so a process was finally underway to have Hoskins defrocked.

The trial date for the latest charges has been set:

25 – 26 April 2016: 10 am, TRIAL, Corner Brook Superior Court (81 Mt. Bernard Avenue.)

15 March 2016: 10 am, application related to trial, Corner Brook Superior Court (81 Mt. Bernard Avenue.)

The current charges were laid February 2013.

(5) Father John E. Sullivan (Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie Ontario)

The current charges against previously convicted clerical molester Father John Sullivan were laid in June and October of 2012. Yes, that’s right. 2012!

Father Smith had a court date 22 September 2015.  His next courtdate is:

27 October 2015: 09:30 am, “to be spoken to,” courtroom #101, North Bay, Ontario court house (360 Plouffe Street)

(6)  Brian Lucy  (Organist in the Archdiocese of Kingston, Ontario)

I’m not quite sure what’s happening here. A trial date had previously been set for 22 February 2016.  Now there is a pre-trial scheduled for 02 October 2015.  I was told this is in chambers and therefore is NOT open to the public:

02 October 2015: 10 am, Pretrial (in chambers), Brockville, Ontario courthouse, (41 Court House Square

I will do a follow-up after 02 October and see of perchance there is another court date tucked in between now and next year’s trial.

Please keep all the victims and complainants in your prayers.


The word is that convicted clerical molester Father Douglas Stamp is now living in Co-Op housing on Elm Street In Toronto.  And, further to that, the word is that because he was a priest the members have elected him to serve as President of the C–Op.


More on the bizarre saga surrounding Father Joe Gorman....

The last we knew Father Gorman announced he was leaving the priesthood (April 2015):  that announcement came on the heels of the archdiocese’s announcement that Father Gorman was being asked to step aside for a period of reflection.

The word now is that Gorman is Director of Ethics and Spiritual Care at the new (2011)  549 bed hospital Humber River Hospital in Toronto.  The hospital is affiliated with the University of Toronto and Queen’s University.

Is Father Gorman officially Mr. Gorman?  I doubt it.  He is probably still in the process of becoming MR. Gorman.  It seems, however, that he is now viewed as an ethicist!

No matter, the bottom line is that this is the  man/priest who, by all accounts, falsified documents related to a marriage, and performed at least two illegal marriages.

Enough for now.

Dejaeger back in court on Edmonton charges

Share Button

Oblate ex-priest and serial child molester Eric Dejaeger is supposed to appear in the Iqaluit court today to plead guilty to some of the sex abuse charges from Edmonton Alberta.  The charges were laid away back in November 2011.  Nearly four years!!!

Dejaeger , who was deported from his native Belgium in January 2011, eventually faced 80 sex-related charges at his Iqualuit trial.  He entered guilty pleas to eight of the charges and was convicted on a further 24.   On 04 February of this year Dejaeger was sentenced to 19 years in jail  – 8 years were deducted as 2:1 credit for time served, therefore 11 years left to serve) .  He has been incarcerated at the detention centre in Iqaluit since his return to Canada.  He will be shipped off to a federal prison after the Edmonton charges are dealt with.

Please pass along any news and/or links to coverage on the outcome, and, as always, please keep Dejaeger’s many victims in your prayers.

Ex priest-convicted-molester Don Grecco faces new charges

Share Button

Ex priest and previously convicted molester Donald Grecco is facing new charges:

25 September 2015: Former priest faces new sex charges

Ordained in 1966, Grecco, as some may recall, was a priest with the Diocese of St. Catharines, Ontario who left the priesthood after 30 years, became a grief and marriage counsellor and married shortly thereafter (2002).  His stepson committed suicide in 2008.  Grecco and his wife separated in 2010 at which time a divorce was pending.  I don’t at this time know if the divorce has been finalised.

I will have to do a bit  of fixing up on the Donald Grecco page, and will get at that next week.  There is a lot of information tucked away in blogs and  on the Grecco brothers page (Donald Grecco was one of four  brothers who entered the priesthood, one of the four being the current Bishop of Charlottetown, Richard Grecco).  That whole page on the Grecco brothers needs to be reformatted – I will get to that too.

Don Grecco’s next court date is:

08 December 2015:  Cayuga courthouse (55 Munsee St. N., Cayuga, Ontario)

I don’t have the  time yet -the info from the OPP is not yet in the courthouse.  will  check on that and update on Monday or Tuesday, – but well before December :)

Please keep the complainants in  our prayers.  I commend them both for finding the courage to come forward.


Previously convicted clerical molester Father John Sullivan had yet another court date this morning in North Bay, Ontario.  Barring news from the media , I will have have no word on the next date until Monday.

As always, as  this sage drags on and on, lease keep Father Sullivan’s many many victims in your prayers.

Charges stayed?

Share Button

I have been informed that there has been a stay in proceedings on the charges against Father Albert Laisnez.    The two-day trial was scheduled to commence tomorrow (01 September 2015)  and run for two days.

The news came from another of Laisnez’ victims.  I have not as yet been able to confirm the stay, and this point have no idea as to the reason (s) .

Laisnez, a priest with the Archdiocese of Edmonton, Alberta ordained in 1962, has had a long history of sexual abuse of women, some just girls in their teens, and others married women.  Back in 1997 the former Archbishop of Edmonton Alberta archdiocese admitted he knew that Laisnez “had problems” and was sent off to Southdown and, yes, quietly recycled.  That was the first of at least two trips to Southdown.

The current charges were laid in January 2014.  This was the first time he faced charges.,

As far as I can tell Father Liasnez’ days of ‘ministry’ in the Archdiocese of Edmonton finally came to an end in 1997 when he was again sent off to Southdown and from there he was off to  Ottawa to study and receive therapy .

Was Albert Laisnez active as a priest in other dioceses after he left Ottawa?  I have no idea. For that natter, did he assist as any parishes in the Ottawa Archdiocese while he was here studying’?   That is highly possible.  Many priests who come to Ottawa to study assist at local parishes.

If anyone can fill in those post 1997 Albert Laisnez years please do.  He has not been  listed in the directories since at least 2010 so I am not even sure if he is still a priest!

Please keep the complainant in your prayers, and please pray for all those who were so cunningly seduced and/or sexually violated by this man.

Enough for now,

Former Nuncio dead

Share Button

Father Robyn Gwynn had a court date in Assignment Court in Kingston, Ontario this morning.

Has anyone heard or seen any news of the outcome?

Gwynn, a priest with the Archdiocese of Kingston, Ontario, is now facing at least 12 charges with allegations dating between the 1980s and 2000.   The priest retired suddenly in May  20014 and has since been on what was described as “an indefinite leave of absence.”  For most if not all of the intervening years Father Gwynn has been living in the area of Berwick, Nova Scotia.

I will check on Monday to find out when his next court date is.

Please keep the complainants in your prayers.


Nathan Labatt‘s recent ccourt date was adjounred – yet again! – to 14 September 2015.

24 August 2015:  Labatt Case Adjourned for Two More Weeks

The former youth volunteer with the Archdiocese of Regina, Saskatchewan Youth Ministry, volunteer with the Ukrainian Catholic Church, and former Boy Scout leader was charged 14 January 2015 with sexual exploitation,  invitation to sexual touching, and possession of child pornography.

Please keep the complainants in your prayers.  This has been nothing but one adjournment after the other after the other for months on end.


Jozef Wesolowski, the former Nuncio to the Dominican Republic and now defrocked priest,  is dead:

28 August 2015:  Vatican says ex-envoy, charged with sexual abuse, has died

According to the article, the Polish-born Weslowski, who has been under ‘modified house arrest,’  was found dead in front of his TV set at 5 am. He was defrocked June 2014.

Weslowski was ‘recalled to Rome’ in 2013 after reports began to circulate that he had sexually abused ‘young men.’

How terribly unfortunate that he did not see fit to return to the Dominicaqn Republic to face his accusers.  He died denying the allegations and charges.

He has now gone to meet his Maker.

Please keep his victims in your prayers

Enough for now,
