This morning I finally connected with someone at the Ottawa courthouse 🙂 For all of you who have been sending emails asking, here is the information for the next court date for Father Faucher. The last court date of 10 September was adjourned to:
08 October 2013: 08:30 am, courtroom #5, “to be spoken to”
The civil trial of Redemptorist priest Father Raymond Marie Lavoie and other Redemporists both dead and alive continues this week in Quebec City, Quebec. Father Lavoie was previously convicted in criminal court and is currently serving a five years prison sentence.
The names of the other eight Redemptorist priests – yes, eight more! – named in the lawsuit have now been posted on Sylvia’s Site. Here links to the names of the nine Redemptorists:
- Herve Blanchet CSsR
- Jean-Claude Bergeron CSsR
- Raymond-Marie Lavoie CSsR
- Guy Pilote CSsR
- François Plourde CSsR
- Léon Roy CSsR
- Alexis Trépanier CSsR
- Lucien de Blois CSsR
- Xiste Langevin CSsR
I have added what information I could find on each. Most of the information online is in French so I found what I could. An onerous process for me 🙁 Anyone who can add information please send it along.
I believe there are several French articles of the trial to date. I have been waiting and hoping for some English coverage, but, no luck. I really do hate posting those google translations, but if that is the only way to get an idea of what is happening in this case I will do so. I ask that those of you who are fortunate enough to be fluently bilingual pick up what coverage you can , put it through a google translation, and give the translation a bit of a going over to correct glaring errors or clarify any confusion created in the translation, and then it to me for posting.
Father John Sullivan has a court date tomorrow morning in North Bay:
17 September 2013: 09:30 am, courtroom #101, “to set a date,” North Bay, Ontario court house (360 Plouffe Street)
I encourage those who are free to do so to attend to keep tabs on what is happening here. As always, please keep the complainants in your prayers, and, if you do attend please send news of the outcome and the next court date
Tomorrow morning is sentencing with facts for Father Daniel Miller in Pembroke, Ontario:
17 September 2013: 10 am, Sentencing with facts, Pembroke, Ontario courthouse (297 Pembroke Street East)
Those victims and/or family members who wish to give a victim impact statement will do so.
The proceedings will be held in courtroom #1. That is a much large courtroom – people will not be squeezed in like sardines as they were for the guilty plea.
I encourage those who can do so to attend to support the victims and their families. Heaven knows these people need to know that there are people in the community who care. Please, if you are free and can find your way to courthouse, be there, – for the victims.
Enough for now,
