    Back to Cornwall…

    Father Gilles Deslaurier has been charged again!

    Deslaurier arrived in Cornwall Ontario as a layman, and Master of Ceremonies and bosom buddy to Adolphe Proulx in 1967 when Proulx took over the helm as bishop of the then Diocese of Alexandria . After Deslaurier was ordained, and after Proulx became Archbishop of the neighbouring archdiocese of Gatineau Hull, and after Deslaurier was identified as a molester, Proulx stepped in to protect his dear ‘friend’.

    The above is a google translation, and at this point is the only coverage I can find on the charges.

    Please keep the complainant in your prayers.

    By the way, to my knowledge he is not a former priest. Unless he was quietly defrocked within the last few years he is still, sad to say, a priest in the Roman Catholic Church.
