Official Announcement: Bishop Suspends Priest to Avoid Further Scandal

Roman Catholic Diocese of Madison
December 6, 2008

(Madison) It has come to the attention of Bishop Robert C. Morlino that Reverend Gerald Vosen has recently published a book named, "Pick a Number: Stories of Faith." In the book, Fr. Vosen makes explicit mention of what occurred during a penal trial, which was initiated to investigate allegations against him involving the abuse of a minor. As Fr. Vosen knows, the entire penal trial is under the Pontifical Secret and no mention of its proceeding is to be made.
