I am in the process of putting together a page on Father Rolan Lanoie, a priest with the Archdiocese of St. Boniface Manitoba who is now facing four counts of sexual assault and one of indecent assault.

Essentially it turns out that during his years as chaplain at the St. Boniface General Hospital Father Lanoie , along with a nun-chaplain and a non-denominational chaplain, became embroiled in a sort of labour dispute with claims that they were bullied and verbally abused by  their boss (a priest who was the spiritual care director).   In 2010, after more than a year of hearings, a labour arbitrator ruled against the trio, stating in part that “The complaints of harassment and abuse in this case were entirely without merit.”

A mess.  When I happened on the first reference to this nonsense  I spent some time trying to get the gist of it sorted out.  I could not believe what I was reading!  Anyway, I think at this point I have done all I can do there, so now it’s just a case of going through a few more Canadian Catholic Church Directories and finding out what else I can regarding where Father Lanie was when.

All being well  I should be posting the page tomorrow.  Until then, here is one of several articles which heralded the charges against Father Roland Lanoie

I will post a note when the page is posted.

Please keep the complainants in your prayers

Enough for now,
