Father Stephen Amesse, a priest with the Archdiocese of Ottawa, Ontario, has been charged. Charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference. Charges date to 2008 – relate to allegations of sex abuse of a 14-year-old boy .
Police have been investigating since February of this year.
Amesse, a late vocation to the priesthood, has been mentioned on Sylvia’s Site in the past, not as a molester but primarily because of his involvement as a layman in compiling the CCCB guidelines on sex abuse (From Pain to Hope).
More to come.
I commend the complainant for speaking up and going to police. He is young. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
I encourage those with further information or allegations to contact police.
Enough for now,
