Diocese to Inform Former Students about Priest

At the urging of a sex-abuse victims group known as SNAP, the Fort Worth Roman Catholic Diocese will send an e-mail to former students at Nolan Catholic High School concerning allegations about a priest who worked there from 1983 until 1990. Out of an abundance of caution, an e-mail will be sent in the next couple of days about the Rev. Daniel A. Triulzi, said diocese spokesman Pat Svacina. Triulzi, a priest of the Marianist order, was removed from St. Mark Catholic Church in Denton in 2005 after an Indiana man filed a lawsuit against him alleging sexual abuse in another state. The settlement in the lawsuit, reached in June, requires Triulzi to be kept away from anyone under 21, according to the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. A spokeswoman for the priest's religious order said that Triulzi lives in St. Louis, Mo., and has no contact with children. SNAP outreach director Barbara Dorris said the diocese's e-mail should be detailed and compassionate and tell people to contact police.
