Pennylvania reports on sexual abuse
Question from JC on 08-20-2018:

Dear Judie:

A relative of mine attended Church services in a parish where one of the priests was listed in the recent Pa. Grand Jury report. She asked me a question which I wasn't sure how to answer.

She wanted to know if the priest who performed marriages, baptisms, and said Mass years back performed legitimate services considering his offenses.

Sincerely,

JC

Answer by Judie Brown on 09-01-2018:

Dear JC

The priest who administered this sacraments did so as an ordained priest regardless of his personal behavior.
