BISHOP: ‘THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN’ (Murphy faces 600 angry parishioners)

In an evening meeting at St. Anne's Church in Garden City last night, close to 600 people demanded answers about two priests who worked there in the 1990s who have had sex abuse allegations made against them.  Bishop William Murphy, who was installed in September to lead the diocese, said, On my watch this will not happen again.  He addressed the group and promised that no priests who have been subject to credible sexual allegations would be allowed to work in parishes.
