Lawyer Calls For ''Parishioners Revolt''

by Siobhan Morris, 610 CKTB News

The lawyer of 3 men molested by a local priest as boys, says the parishioners of the St. Catharines Diocese should revolt.

Robert Talach represents Mike Blum, James Hennessey & a man who can't be named because of a publication ban. All 3 were victimized by Father Donald Grecco in the 1970s & 80s.

In December 2010, Grecco was sentenced to 18-months behind bars after pleading guilty to 3 counts of gross indecency. The man, now in his 70s was recently released from prison & is serving 2 years probation. His name & DNA are now on the national sex offender registry.

Talach says between Grecco's case &that of Father James Kneale, who in 2010 plead guilty to performing oral sex on a 16-year-old boy---there should be pickets in the streets of Niagara.

Talach argues the St. Catharines Diocese did nothing to help his clients when they came forward with allegations of abuse. Each of them have filed separate $3-million suits in which Grecco & the Diocese are named.

Talach says parishioners need to break away from being "sheep", speak out against abuse & take the Church away from people who are "captaining the Titanic into the ocean floor".
