This pervert was a Priest of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and was ordained on the 25 May 1958. He was first charged in 1989 ane eventually faced 32-charges related to allegations of sex abuse of nine boys age 9 to 12 between the years 1958 and 1979 (one source says 15). Sullivan pleased guilty! He was sentenced to two years and six months. There have also been lawsuits launched by three brothers alleging abuse by Sulllivan when he served as priest at Canadian Forces Base Falconbridge, Ontario. Further criminal charges were laid June 2012, and two more charges in Fall of 2012. Sullivan just went to face justice on Easter Sunday, the same day as Mother Angelica. For her, it was a "blessing" according to Pope Benedict XVI; what was it for Sullivan a traveller, gardiner and host of many friends.
The victim of a now-dead priest he calls a "serial molester" had harsh words for the Catholic Church after settling his lawsuit in Sudbury on Monday.
The victim, identified only as P.J.J., issued the statement following an out-of-court settlement with the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie.
"This five-year ordeal has cemented my thoughts that this church from the top down is not truly interested in action "¦ only hollow words of apology to placate the masses," he wrote in a statement released by Beckett Litigation Lawyers of London, Ont.
"If they were truly repentant I would call for them to immediately defrock the pervert collars (I cannot bring myself to ever use the term priest or father), and then offer all the support required to assist the victims. This would also mean to stop defending the convicted collars in litigation immediately.
