A man who volunteered within the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana, has been arrested on charges related to child pornography and the sexual abuse of an animal. Catholic officials now must share this information at every location where this volunteer worked and urge anyone who saw or suspected wrongdoing by the man to come forward and make a report to law enforcement.
While the Diocese of Lafayette claims that Isac Calderon-Sierra never had the opportunity to be alone with any youth while he volunteered at Our Lady Queen of All Saints Church, we think it is important that parents and parishioners are made aware of this news. It is possible that Calderon-Sierra could have taken advantage of his trusted position to be alone with children without the knowledge of Diocesan leaders. It behooves them to pull out the stops in order to ensure that no one else was hurt.
