Irish Jesuits Apologise: Fr. Joseph Marmion, The Monster of Belvedere
- Other Apps
The Jesuit Order placed Fr Marmion on sabbatical leave in Paris at the Jesuit Community of Saint François Xavier for the end of the academic year 1977/1978 after reports from concerned parents in 1977 of sexual abuse at the school.
He was then transferred to the Gardiner Street Jesuit Community. In 1990, the Jesuit Order appointed Fr Marmion as chaplain to St Vincent’s Private Hospital.
The Jesuit Order "recognise that these subsequent appointments should not have been made".
It is only now that all this is finally out in the open the Jesuits and their current slippery provincial, Leonard Maloney, are engaged in a PR exercise to save the cash!
The only way to deal with abusers is to inform the police. Go straight to the police.
