The page for Father Maurice O. Charbonneau (Father Moe) has been added. Father Moe Charbonneau, a priest with the Diocese of London Ontario ordained in 1994, was suspended after reports of several incidences of “inappropriate adult relationship” over several years.
The age and gender of the these “adults” is, at this time, unknown.
Note that according to the the following article Father Charbonneau was scheduled to serve in the Diocese of Grand Falls Newfoundland for two years commencing January 2005:
Does anyone know if in fact Father Moe Charbonnau did spend time in Newfoundland in the mid 2000s?
Please all those keep those who have been betrayed by Father Father Charbonneau in your prayers.

I wonder what would have happened had Bishop Fred Henry not given Buckley safe have in the Diocese of Calgary back in 1998?
And yes, I am trying yet again to find out if this man is still a Roman Catholic priest.
Please all those keep those who have been betrayed by Father Mark Buckley in your prayers.

Calgary priest removed from local parishes following allegations of sexual misconduct
28 October 2018
A priest who has worked at Catholic parishes around southern Alberta has been put on administrative leave after allegations of sexual misconduct were brought forward to the Diocese of Calgary.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary made the announcement in an official statement released on Saturday.
The diocese said it received allegations of sexual misconduct involving two minors and several adults by Fr. Malcolm D’Souza. The incidents are alleged to have taken place at St. Mark’s Parish in Calgary between 2010 and 2016, according to the diocese’s statement.
The statement said diocese officials have contacted law enforcement authorities and “there will be no further comments until the investigation has been completed.”
The statement said Bishop McGrattan removed D’Souza from the St. Bernard’s and Assumption parishes, where he was most recently working, and placed him on administrative leave.
A Calgary Police Service spokesperson said on Sunday that there is “no active investigation by the Sex Crimes Unit into this incident as of yet,” adding that the CPS has been in contact with the diocese.
The statement is being announced this weekend at all masses in every parish where the priest has served in the Diocese of Calgary.
Global News has not been able to reach D’Souza for comment.
Anyone with information is encouraged to come forward to police, Patricia Jones, the chair of the Sexual Abuse Misconduct Committee at 1-833-547-8360, or Fr. Tim Boyle, the bishop’s delegate, at 1-403-330-5923.
Please keep the complainants in your prayers.
Enough for now,
