Hi, all on these pages, yes it does happen in Catholic churches, orphanages, schools, etc. It is a sad thing a man of God!
But I will say with some experience, that this is the exception and not the norm.
But for this young Catholic boy, I was SAVED from my perpertraters, mother included, while I was IN a CATHOLIC orphanage/Home, at least while I was physically in the Home, , for 9 months of the year,for 4 years, on school vacation I was again fresh meat for my perpertraters. So there are definately 2 sides to every story. I am not defending the actions of sexual abuse by either a Catholic priest, Brother or nun.
Heal well my friends.
