Hartford Archdiocese identifies 48 priests accused of sexual abuse

By Dave Altimari, Jesse Levenworth and David Owens
Harford Courant, 22 Jan 2019

....

Besides naming 48 priests accused of abuse, the archdiocese also
announced it had paid about $50.6 million to settle more than 140
claims of sexual abuse.

Among the priests identified Tuesday is a member of the Hall of Fame
for the Connecticut State Firefighters Association, several priests
who worked as chaplains at area hospitals and two who have been arrested
on criminal charges.

The archdiocese also announced it would hire a retired state judge to
review priest personnel files in an effort, according to Archbishop
Leonard Blair, to remove the “dark cloud” that still hangs over the
Catholic Church.

“I have been a bishop now for almost 20 years and most of them have
been overshadowed by the sin and scandal of sexual abuse and its
devastating effect on the victims, survivors and their families, on
the morale of our priests and on the faith and even the practice of
the faith among the Catholic people,” Blair said in a statement released
on the church website. “The lingering unhealed wounds from past
abuse continue to cry out for further actions and answers."

David Gianfredi, now 57, who was allegedly abused by the Rev. Thomas
Glynn at St. Clare Church in East Haven, said Tuesday’s release of names
is a good first step, but those who allowed the abuse to continue
by shuttling abusers to other parishes must be held accountable.

The job of shoveling out the stables continues. There are
going to be more of these reports from around the US, and from
other countries. Apologists will undoubtedly opine that this is
"old news," and claim that it is time to "move on."

Yes, move on from belief in magical nonsense that gave this
sort of behavior cover.

Norwich Diocese: 43 priests accused of child sex abuse

Joe Wojtas: 9 Feb (updated 10 Feb) 2019

Diocese of Norwich Bishop Michael Cote announced Saturday that 43 priests who have served in the diocese have had "allegations of substance" made against them regarding sexual abuse of minors.

Cote said the list of priests accused since the establishment of the diocese in 1953 will be posted on its website, norwichdiocese.org, at 2 p.m. Sunday and published this month it its newspaper, The Four County Catholic.

Cote defined an "allegation of substance" as one in which the priest has pleaded guilty or no contest in criminal court of any incident of sexual misconduct; the allegation has been investigated and "been determined to be reasonable, plausible, probable and bearing the semblance of the truth," is corroborated with other evidence or another source and/or has been acknowledged or admitted to by the accused priest.

Cote's announcement came in a letter that was included in church bulletins distributed at Saturday afternoon's Masses.

In addition, the diocese also announced that since July 1, 1977, it has paid out almost $7.7 million in settlements to victims in connection with nine cases. There are 23 more cases pending against the diocese. Other victims have been unable to file suits because the statute of limitations has expired.

Cote said almost $4.9 million was paid by its insurance company, $1 million came from the diocesan general fund and almost $1.8 million in payments were made by entities such as religious orders or other dioceses the priests belonged to, as well as from the accused priests themselves.

HMMM! Isn't it remarkable how, after one diocese has paid a huge claim, there are suddenly hundreds of people lining up to claim sexual abuse which they never mentioned to anyone before? Sharks do the same thing when they smell blood in the water.

It's what the FBI calls a "racket."
