Healing service follows defrocking of priests

ABC News

Dozens of Anglican parishioners have been told the damage caused by the defrocking of several Hunter and Central Coast priests is horrendous.

Newcastle’s Anglican Bishop Brian Farran has been in the firing line since he defrocked three Hunter priests including the former Dean of Newcastle, Graeme Lawrence earlier this year.

They were stripped of their holy orders over sexual abuse allegations.

No charges have been laid and all three deny the allegations.
