Diocese Newsletter - November 10th, 2020

 
From the Bishop's Office
 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
 
 
Unfortunately the Diocese has received a formal complaint concerning an allegation of sexual misconduct involving Fr. Patrick McGraw and an adult.
 
Following our procedures and protocol, Fr. McGraw has been suspended from ministry while we complete our investigation.
 
In addition, following other complaints, it has come to our attention that certain financial irregularities may have occurred involving Fr. McGraw. This is also under investigation.
 
Fr Régent Landry, Vicar General, has been appointed Pastor of the Saint-Jean-Eudes Parish.
 
The Diocese takes any complaints regarding matters of alleged misconduct very seriously and is grateful to those who, in accordance with our policies and procedures, bring matters forward.
 
We pray for all those who are impacted by this painful situation.
 
BISHOP OF BATHURST
