(NOTE:   since this article was posted Father Ed MacNeil’s faculties for the Archdiocese of Ottawa were revoked:  30 November 2010:  BLOG Good News!  Furthermore, in response to question posed, I was advised by Ottawa”s Vicar General & Chancellor Monisgnor Kevin Beach on 07 December 2010  that

“Fr. MacNeil received faculties during the time of Archbishop Gervais’ ministry.  Therefore, the faculties were in place when Archbishop Prendergast arrived in 2007.  When our present Archbishop [Prendergast] learned of Fr. MacNeil’s history, he instructed that his faculties be revoked.”  )


Father Ed MacNeil, a convicted molester, has been saying Mass for the past eight years and ministering to native peoples.  He has done so with the consent and approval of Ottawa’s Archbishop Terrence Prendergast SJ. (see above)  Prendergast  is one of the bishops chosen by the Vatican to examine the sex abuse scandals in Ireland

 On the front page of the Kateri Bulletin October 2010  Father Ed MacNeil is listed a “Sacramental Minister” for the Kateri Native Ministry of Ottawa.  Administrative Asst. is Daryold Corbiere Winkler.  That is Father Daroyld Corbiere Winkler csb, a Basilian priest, ordained 1997,  currently  pursuing his doctorate at Ottawa’s Saint Paul University.
