Catholic Charities CEO, John Kerry, Ignored Warnings About Priest Child Abuser


October 16, 2006

John Kerry
Catholic Charities
Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland

Dear Mr. Kerry,

The resources of Catholic Charities Maine are needed to help protect children from child sex abuse in a Biddeford neighborhood.

The information I have provided below advises you that a Diocese of Portland priest who has abused children is presently living in a neighborhood full of kids.

You can help protect these kids by speaking publicly about your concerns. Speaking privately to your pastor or the bishop is a waste of time.

If you choose to do nothing, a child may be harmed.
