Grecco entered a guilty plea last May to charged related to the sex abuse of two about 40 years ago. In March 2010 he was sentenced to 18 months and two years probation for sexually abusing three boys in the ’70s and 80s. In March 2011 he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions and sentenced to the 30 days he served pre-trial plus one day.
Please keep the victims in your prayers. And please appas along any news you see of the outcome.
The comments re Father Bernard (Bernie) Cameron are coming 🙂 Please note that the following was posted on the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall website:
Death of Father Bernard Cameron (Alexandria-Cornwall Diocese)
Note that studies have been under way for months regarding a possible merger between the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall and the Archdiocese of Ottawa:
March 2017: Should the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall merge with the Archdiocese of Ottawa?
October 2017: Alexandria-Cornwall Diocese to merge with Ottawa Archdiocese?
It seems that most Catholics in the diocese are opposed to the merger, but strangely seem happy with the the idea of having an auxiliary bishop from Ottawa resident in the Cornwall area. Whatever happens, I do believe that the days of “the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall” are coming to end.
Enough for now,
