Previously convicted and currently incarcerated molester Father Yvon Arsenaul had a court date scheduled in Moncton, New Brunswick today:
07 September 2017: 09:30 am, Moncton Courthouse Moncton NB (45 Assumption Blvd)
According to Baspuit, Arsenault is due back in court 19 October 2017 at 9:30 am. I will check to find out what is happening. It sounds as though the original hearing was adjourned?
As always, please keep the complainants in your prayers.
Ex-priest and previously convicted molester Donald Grecco had a court date scheduled for this morning:
07 September 2017: sentencing, Robert S. K. Welch St Catharine’s courthouse, St. Catharine’s, Ontario (59 Church St
I’m not certain if this is a sentencing hearing or sentencing, or perhaps if the judge decides to do so, both? No matter, there should be some news fairly soon.
Please keep the victims in your prayers.
(I am about to post the first two parts of Grant LaFleche‘s excellent series, “The wolf in priest’s clothing” which has been running in the Welland Tribune/St. Catharine’s Standard. Once posted I will let you know.)
Note that three more men have come forward alleging sexual abuse as teenagers at the hand of previously convicted Viatorian priest Father Ronald Leger:
07 September 2017: Winnipeg priest faces new sexual assault charges
A reminder that Father Leger is a native of Cornwall Ontario. He attended and taught at Cornwall Classical College and, was in fact a teacher at the college when Father Denis Vaillancourt was a student (the verdict in the Vaillancourt trial is set for 11 September). While teaching at the college Leger was a good friend of Father Paul Lapierre. Lapierre has since been charged and convicted for sex abuse of Claude Marleau.
I commend all of the men who have come forward. Please keep them in your prayers.
Sorry, I’ve had a flu bug since Sunday 🙁 Still under the weather but did want to get these posted.
Enough for now,
