Is it the Bergolian Tax-Church they’re leaving after all?
CNA Staff, May 26, 2020 / 08:00 am MT (CNA).- A record number of people left the Church in the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising last year, a local statistical office said Tuesday.
The Munich statistical office told CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner, May 26 that 10,744 Catholics formally withdrew from the Church in 2019. It noted that this was a fifth higher than in 2018, when 8,995 people left.
Statisticians said this was the first time that annual departures had surpassed the 10,000 mark since records began. Previously, the highest figure was 9,010, set in 1992.
Saint John's Boys' Chorus "Artistic Director" Dismissed After Nearly a Year for "Likely" Sexual Abuse of Children
|Predator Heywood With Boy's Choir|
ST. JOSEPH — An unnamed person is no longer involved with the St. John's Boys Choirs after the organization determined allegations of sexual misconduct against minors were "more likely than not."
The Stearns County Sheriff's Office would not comment Friday about the case except to say its investigation was still active.
St. John's University, of [sic] which the choir is affiliated, issued a statement Friday about its own investigation conducted with the National Catholic Youth Choir. This investigation determined "it is more likely than not that the individual engaged in the alleged sexual misconduct involving minors, including engaging in communications and sending, soliciting and possessing photos of a sexual nature," the statement said.
According to the statement, the adult is "no longer with either organization."
The report of misconduct came from a minor in the summer of 2019.
The organizations have communicated with current and past choir participants to identify potential victims and offer support, the statement said.
"The safety and well-being of the Choirs' participants is at the forefront of the Choirs' mission and programming," the statement said.
