He uses abuse to get what he wants from young boys.

    • 1 abandoned sheep says:

      Please go to the Press about this, as well as the RCMP. Thanks for making this public, but something more has to be done before he ruins more lives. I will pray you find a way to stop him in his plans. GOD Bless !

  3. Sylvia says:

    Thanks for that information st. john bosco. I have moved Stanford’s name over to the Of Interest/Non Clerical page where it belongs. I have also opened a page for him. I don’t unfortunately have much information. Can you perhaps help?

    Was he convicted? Which school or schools was he teaching at? Any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    IF he was convicted then the fact that he is now employed by the provincial government and permitted to work at a sports centre amongst young boys and girls boggles the mind.

    • st.john bosco says:

      Yes he was convicted,he was sentenced to 4 and a half years.He was a teacher at St.john bosco school in a community in St.john’s.NL.(Shea Height’s). He is now working at the newfoundland and labrador sports center on Crosbie road in st.john’s.

  4. tony w says:

    To st.john bosco- Is he the same Gary Stanford that taught at st.pat’s school in st.john’s,i remember him. I spent time at mount cashel,an orphanage for young boy’s , and he used to bring basketball teams in to play against us.When we were done playing,the christian brothers used to let us go swimming in the pool.I think Gary was good friends with alot of christian brothers.Thanks for the update st.john bosco!! I cant believe that the government of newfoundland employes him at the newfoundland and labrador sports center. This totally outrages me, Im blown away.

  5. Stevie says:

    st. johns Bosco….thanks for this info
    hi all, i think the abuse went beyond strictly clergy and appears to be involved in RC spin-offs such as teachers, etc..

  6. Joan says:

    To St. John Bosco and Sylvia,

    Was this convicted RC School Teacher fired from teaching and what has he been doing since then. To hear of the present employment circumstances suprises me!

    To St. John Bosco any further updates are appreciated, whereabouts, etc..

  7. Sylvia says:

    I am trying to get some more information on Stanford. I have no idea if his teaching licence has been revoked or not. It should have been, but, …maybe it wasn’t? I will try to find out.

    Yes, Stevie, Catholic teachers figure in this dirty mess too. I can’t list them off the top of my head, and don’t have time right now to look them all up, but there are a number of disturbing sex abuse scandals involving Catholic teachers. For example, in the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall there was Robert Sabourin. He was a great friend of Bishop Proulx and of number of diocesan clergy, and was sort of the unofficial diocesan photographer. He was convicted.

    And in the Diocese of Peterborough there was Frank Russell , who at one time was in charge of Religious Education in the diocese: he was convicted, as was his brother Father William Russell.

    And of course in the Diocese of London Ontario there’s Mark Baggio who was convicted years ago and has just now had his licence revoked.

    There are many more.

    And then I’ve been noticing that there seem to be a number of predatory clergy who were teachers first before they felt ‘called’ to the priesthood, and then eventually wound up convicted.

    My plan way back was to eventually add the names of all convicted Catholic teachers. I will eventually get around to that.

    • Paddy says:

      Ken Deluca of Sault Ste. Marie separate school board was loose in the 80’s and found guilty of sexual crimes against girls over many years. He was ‘counselled’ by his brother, Wayne Deluca a separate school board trustee and parish priest and moved from elementary school to girl’s catholichigh school, where he could be ‘watched over’ by his wife and fellow teacher. Said parish priest was subsequently appointed to the diocese office and given the rank of Monseigneur.

  8. Mark says:

    To st. john Bosco,

    If you have any further details it would be appreciated given stanford is still employed at a place where children attend. Were the convictions for assault, sexual assault and indecency, while he was a teacher? God bless

  9. Frank says:

    To All, Is this nuts or just crazy, having this convicted sex offender working in the building with young people. What are the people in newfoundland thinking…wake up!

  10. susan says:

    WE Need more information….anyone?

  11. Terry says:

    To st. john Bosco & Sylvia,

    As a Convicted sex offender does this ex-teacher need a Police Conduct to work at this center? As children are present!

  12. Gail says:

    To St. John Bosco: after being convicted and serving time for sex abuse how did this ex RC school teacher get hired for this job??

  13. Fred says:

    Hi—were there any news paper references to this case? If so, this may help Susan, Sylvia and Tony W.

  14. Sylvia says:

    Let’s move the comments on Stanford over to the Raymond Garth Stanford page so that all of the information is collected in one place. There are comments starting here

  15. Shelley says:

    TO St John Bosco= Everyone, especially parents, are thankfull that this matter was brought public. Thanks

  16. Marion says:

    Wondering if this pedophile was “checked”?
    It is August 30, 2014. Any more on him? Has anyone checked with the courts?

  17. Nadine says:

    Looking for an elementary school girls basket ball coach called Mr Bump, from 1972.
    He coached at a catholic school in Burnaby.
    Any info on his first name appreciated.

  18. Maureen Raffa says:

    I have just returned from Kelowna and found out about Ken Farrell et al. It is always such a surprise to me when I find out about these monsters. Looking back on my life there has always been these people in our midst. First was F.McKay in St.James in Calgary, R.White in my high school and now all the diferent “priests” in the Nelson Diosese. What makes me angry is I was always fooled by them. What a poor judge of character I have. A friend once said to me that I was most fortunate in the family that was and is mine. If something had happened to me I would have told my parents and would have believed.
    I have not seen the name of F.McKay anywhere and he was pure evil. The coverup by the Diosese still amazes me to this day.

  19. Newfoundgurl says:

    It’s hard to live with a secret, especially when it is not my own, but that of a loved one.

    Only 3 months ago my husband had humbly shared with me the incident from his
    elementary school years. The time when he went to have music lessons with his
    female music teacher at her home. That was the day he lost his virginity.
    Just a small town on the east coast, who would ever find out ?

    Three more sessions of tutoring on “how to play a recorder”
    never happened, instead he was taught about a 25 year old woman’s body and
    the pleasure of intercourse, ejaculation and oral sex; at just 8 years old.
    Other boys had tutoring with this teacher.
    It makes me wonder how this has affected them, and if they too carry this burden.

    This teacher carried on her career and retired from a school in St. John’s a few years ago.
    For well over 30+ years, she has been well known and recognized in several rural communities;
    Mme is known specifically for her contribution to teaching, singing, choral and the arts.

    Today, my spouse suffers from social anxiety, depression, and past addictions, thankfully medication helps. This has affected his perception of woman, of sexual desire, and embracing the true intimacy of lovemaking. He carries the guilt and shame; for agreeing to revisit this teacher, given the pleasure he so innocently discovered as a boy, with a trusted music teacher, who preyed on his shyness and fed her sick sexual desires over him and other helpless children.

    I pray forgiveness over her. I pray the healing blood of Jesus of each child she molested.
    I pray for my husband and the marriage we have just started 9 months ago.

    I too was molested at age 9 and in my teens, by family members.
    Thank God, I have moved past that time and healed.

    It is not my place to announce this to the authorities. Hearsay.
    One day, I pray my husband will break the silence and share this with
    his psychiatrist and the RCMP.

    • Geenda says:

      She is a disgusting pig and a sick pedophile to do that to a young child of 8 years old. She should be charged and jailed for what she did it isn’t too late. How many children were abused? He surely wasn’t the only one…I feel for him he like many of us, has endured a life sentence but she gets away with it…

  20. James Victor says:

    Former Catholic School Teacher Gerald Rene Levert is currently before the courts in Quebec and Ontario for multiple accounts of sexual assault and one charge of gross indecency.

  21. Tom B says:


  22. John says:

    Tony Wakeham, who commented on Gary Stanford’s arrest in the Telegram, is now seeking the PC leadership in NL.. Gary Stanford must be a big supporter!!!!

  23. James Victor says:

    In follow up to my previous comment on Gerald Rene Levert. His court case in Quebec resulted in acquittal though the judge said ” it is likely that this abuse occurred” – Reasonable doubt wins again.

    During the trial it was learned that Levert bounced around Ontario and Quebec with many stops lasting just a few months. He was also forced to admit to his previous convictions for similar crimes. Through this process I have learned that justice is hard to come by in Canada.

    I have also learned a new term that is used in education circles to signify criminal behaviour from students and teachers – “Fresh Start” It is where past behaviour is swept under the carpet at their new school. I learned this from a currently employed Toronto Catholic teacher. This is the biggest crime in our education system in my opinion. Schools and Boards burying their garbage praying crimes will not be repeated.

  24. Wil says:

    Does anyone know about someone by the name Mike Mooney, or Michael John Mooney, who might have been a support worker or priest in the Windsor area in the late 1970s to the late 80s? Particularly within the Roman Catholic network. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    • Catherine Heart says:

      I’m not 100 percent sure about a Michael Mooney, but the Mooney family is very well known in the RC Diocese of London. There were five brothers and one sister in the Mooney family – born circa 1930’s – descendants of Frederick and Helen (Moran) Mooney. Four brothers all became Catholic priests, Paul, John, Thomas and Donald. They were all London Diocesan priests with the exception of Donald who was a C.S.B. (Basilian Order – same congregation as Bishop Fabbro). The fifth brother, Joseph, married Bernadette and they had seven children – Mary Helen Mooney (she was a doctor – died in 2016); Jim; Patricia; Gerald; Bernard; Maureen and Kevin.
      Unfortunately – no reference in this family to a Michael Mooney. He may have been a cousin – or nephew???

  25. Wil says:

    Thank you for your reply. His full name is Michael John Mooney and I believe he is about 75 right now. Thank you for the information.
