Bishop Kettler: Corrections to list of clergy involved in sexual abuse of minors

Categories: News / Statements

February 14, 2014

  • Henry Lutgen: Additional assignments inadvertently omitted: Assistant director Catholic Charities, St. Cloud; St. Columbkille, St. Wendel; Community Hospital and Pine Villa, Melrose; St. Mary, Melrose.
  • Adelbert Wolski, TOR (Third Order Regular of St. Francis): Deceased, Jan. 3, 2012, Hollidaysburg, Pa.

Please note that we list official assignments only. An individual priest may have also served in other capacities such as at hospitals and schools as an extension of his pastoral duties in a given community.

I want to again extend my sincere apologies to all, especially the survivors of sexual abuse by a member of the clergy, for having to live through, and with, this horrendous experience. Please be assured that we are doing all that is possible today to protect children and vulnerable adults from becoming victims of sexual abuse by a clergy.
