Three more priests have been named to the Diocese of Davenport’s list of credible cases of child sexual abuse by a priest. Two of those are dead; the third was a brother in the Franciscan Brothers of Christ the King. According to the report the two that died are William Kerrigan and James Lawrence.
The list is four pages long and can found through the Diocese of Davenport home page.
List of Credible Allegations Against Priests and Brothers. Of the 31 names 11 remain alive and one’s whereabouts appear unknown so his death can not be reported. The list includes the name of the living as Francis Bass, Paul Deyo, Daniel Emrich, James Janssen, James Leu, Frank Martinez, Mark Quillen, Brother Francis Skube, Eugene Smith, Lawrence Soens and Gerald Stouvenel. For more detailed information see the list by following the link. You can download the list as an Adobe Acrobat file.
As a person born and raised as a Catholic I have to wonder if those guilty of abuse are burning in hell or banished to purgatory.
