    I think the Kavanaugh issue got me to thinking about Vesnaugh and I stumbled on this site. I was one of the altar boys at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Detroit when Vesnaugh used to take a group of us swimming at Mumford High School. Somehow he had access to the pool after hours. No one was there but our group.

    He told us that the pool rules forbade us from wearing swimming suits (presumably for “health” issues) and that we had to swim naked. So there we were, probably a dozen 7th and 8th graders, running around naked and jumping off the diving board while Vesnaugh watched. I recall Vesnaugh wearing a swimsuit, but I could be mistaken. I remember the kid he went after, a quiet, weaker kid who lived down the street from me. Not much was said about it at the time, or at least not to us. We vaguely knew what he did.

    I never forgot what happened and purposely kept my kids away from the church while they grew up because of this. It still makes me sick that he did that to us. My family was heavy into the church and I ended up going to a Jesuit high school. Luckily, I never encountered anything there like what happened in grade school with Vesnaugh.
