I was unable to post a blog on the evening of 17 May when we stopped in Ottawa Illinois for the night. We arrived at our destination safely on Friday evening. I only this evening got the password to the get my laptop up and running. The days have been full since arrival – off to baseball games, dance rehearsals and a dance recital – just going with the flow in a delightfully busy household. Enjoying every golden minute 🙂
My thoughts and prayers were with Julie and the Chisholm family in a very special way this past week, and especially Saturday morning during the funeral. Thank you John for giving us an update. Carson will be sorely missed. A trip to Cornwall will never be the same.
May he rest in peace.
I saw no news on the outcome of the Marcel Lalonde courtdate 15 May 2014. When I get home in a little over a week I will get and post the next court date. Meanwhile, please keep the complainant in your prayers.
Father Albert Laissnez has finally been charged:
I commend the complainant who found the courage to go to police. Well done. I am a little puzzled in that it seems the charges were laid early this year and it is only now we are hearing about them. How was this kept so quiet for so long? And a preliminary hearing is already booked for 11 December of this year in Sherwood Park, Alberta! Unusual. Anyway, I do encourage anyone with allegations against Father Liasnez to contact police.
No charges to be laid against Father William Dohey
A diocesan investigation is presumably under way – and we still have not the faintest idea what the investigation entails. Unusual too.
I will moderate comments from my cell and can do so several times a day. Time on the computer is a little more difficult. I will post Canadian news when I can – no promises beyond that.
Enough for now,
