lurid movie alle xual ring of priests operat ing out of a diocese gift shop and of priests at a diocesesponsored youth camp making passes at youngsters One priest has admitted he was a sex addict Yet a cloud of hurt anger and contusion remains Some among the faithful continue to defend their disgraced priests while not all the clergy who were spared are happy with how their diocese handled the controversy I dont feel that the church was said Robert Zimmermann a parish leader at St Teresas where some tied yellow ribbons when their pastor was removed I wouldnt want to be put in that position and have to rely on my church to help me The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests while lauding Belleville for being one of the few dioceses that makes a public announcement when it ousts a pedophile priest says there still is too much secrecy and not enough support for victims Also most of the allegations against the priests are decades old Some victims and even some priests said they reported sexual abuse years ago but nothing was done Im particularly very angry the way a lot of our victims were not heard and sad that God has given us the ability to be compassionate and we havent always said the Rev Clyde Orogan Bishop Wilton Gregory who took over the 128parish diocese in February 1994 acknowl edges he has a lot of healing to do But citing privacy concerns he refuses to say where the removed priests are staying what will become of them or to give any specifics on the allega tions Gregory emphasizes none of the men will return to public ministry where they have access to children Under canon law a bishop must continue to care for a priest unless he resigns or is forced out by a church trial The diocese has set up a tollfree number for victims and paid more than million for counseling of both victims and the accused care for the priests and legal fees Weve been honest straightforward and public in handling Gregory said Every decision I make is both a serious one and one that obviously will probably offend or confuse or anger one or another party but that does not cause me to shrink from it at SNAP director David Clohessy in St Louis said Gregory has not been direct enough When removal announcements are made guilt often is implied rather than stated as in the most recent one involving two priests that appeared in the diocesan newspaper where the words sexual abuse didnt even appear No priests have been charged with any crimes since the statute of limitations has expired in nearly all cases One priest was accused of having sexually abused a 12yearold in 1993 but prosecutors did not press charges because of a lack of phys ical evidence I think part of the problem is people would want us to say a priest is guilty or not guilty and sometimes it is not that black and saic James Margason the dioceses vicar general Is your church listed in the church directory on this page Find out how to get on the list call the HeraldZeitung at
